Small handmade pig figurine with a cowhide covering. The pig is a talisman of good fortune for the new year. In German the expression "schwein gehabt” means "got lucky there!" but translates literally to "got pig!". The pig has been a symbol of luck and prosperity since the middle ages because the possession of many pigs was a sign of wealth and meant that you would never go hungry. A small pig is still often gifted around the holidays as an amulet of good fortune for the new year. Two pieces are available and they are slightly different.
