I've written recently of my need for a home stocked with household fortune-telling devices and break-in-case-of-celebration pinatas. Little did I imagine there was a lovely mystical object that offers both much-needed advice and a chance to break something...Discovered (designed) by Yoad David Luxembourg of the Netherlands, and available gorgeously-packaged through Gretel Home, Fortune Chickens are content to sit serenely until desperate times require their guidance. They must be desperate indeed, for acquiring the Chicken's wisdom requires smashing its beautiful form, revealing the fortune hidden within.
That's quite a bargain to have to strike. By sacrificing a beloved object, you allow it to fulfill its destiny and come to your aid. I love it.
