At least once per month I wipe down my sculptures with "Liquid Gold" furniture polish or a natural "Beeswax" polish. If your sculptures start showing signs of "dry" spots before the end of the month, you might want to start treating them more than once per month.

In astrology, the color of Mars is red and it has dynamic power over iron. Iron gives us our red blood and without it, we would have some sort of pale liquid flowing in our veins. Mars is also the God of War. Translated, it means a martial spirit, quick strength, force, power and leadership.
Bold reds are thought to introduce feelings of wealth and happiness into a person’s life. Supplementing your otherwise subdued room with red accents will brighten your mood and perhaps even bring you luck. Don’t go overboard with strong reds or you may end up creating a negative energy infused with anger and agitation.
Success Direction - Display items for Career, Prosperity, Strength, Stability, Protection and Wealth. You should always display Wealth and Protection symbols in this area at a minimum.

Laughing Buddha in Feng Shui
WEALTH, HEALTH & HAPPINESS
LAUGHING BUDDHA - The Laughing Buddha is well known symbol of happiness, wealth, kindness and innocent contented joy. It is believed that by rubbing his tummy each day, which is said to contain much wealth, will bring good luck and prosperity.
Buddhas should never be placed on the floor as this is a sign of disrespect. All About Feng Shui recommends that you place your Buddha at least 4' from the floor in an elevated position. Treat him with respect and he will reward you handsomely.
Best direction for him to be placed is our personal wealth direction. Place a figurine of a laughing Buddha in your living room and garden. The Buddha is the most revered deity in the East. Choose an image of him laughing to attract happiness to your home.
If you find that you are feeling stressed out which could lead to you suffering with migraines it would be good idea to position a Laughing BUDDHA on your desk so when you look at him it will seem as though he is taking your worries away leaving your mind clear to think. To make you feel happy why not sit your HAPPY BUDDHA facing you and look at him and capture his smile every day to make you feel happy again and to help you forget all that is troubling you. He collects your troubles in his sack and carries the bottle gourd filled with Holy Nectar for a long life.
Will bring joy and luck into your home.

They are also excellent mates, taking perfect care of each other. Never seen apart or without the other tagging along many termed this the "perfect marriage". As such they eventually became the definitive symbol for conjugal bliss. Even today they are still the most potent symbol of everlasting love.

People have been fascinated with this exotic wild animal for hundreds of years because they are the tallest of all land living animals. Giraffes often are seen in "Necking" contests to establish dominance and obtain access to sexually receptive females. Another function of necking is sexual, in which two giraffes caress and court each other
Giraffes can be seen in paintings, including the famous painting of a giraffe which was taken from Somalia to China in 1414. The giraffe was placed in a Ming Dynasty zoo. At one point the giraffe was associated with the mythical Qilin, and a derivative of that name (kirin) is still used as the word for giraffe in Japan, Taiwan, and Korea.
The Medici giraffe was a giraffe presented to Lorenzo de' Medici in 1486. It caused a great stir on its arrival in Florence, being reputedly the first living giraffe to be seen in Italy since the days of Ancient Rome. Another famous giraffe, called Zarafa, was brought from Africa to Paris in the early 1800s and kept in a menagerie for 18 years.
The Crabby Nook carries a very nice collection of Giraffe statues for your Home decorating, Office decor or a child's room. We now offer "Free Shipping" on most of our statues! These exotic animal statues make wonderful unique gifts.
