Summer of 100 Photos, Day 92: Something weird in your house

I can’t really determine what “weird” actually means in this context, as I have nothing that I consider “weird”. Everything that I have has a story behind it, or has purpose, so “weird” (in this context) doesn’t really work for anything.IMG_20160817_190622931This is a figas, a totem of sorts from Brazil that imparts good fortune. The “fig sign” as it is called, is made by grasping the thumb between the index and middle fingers. Interestingly–and weirdly–enough, it’s also a vulgar sign in many cultures around the world–similar to “the bird” in US vernacular. This specimen is carved from wood in a fair bit of detail, and sits in a discreet spot on my bookshelf.

It’s a neat little trinket, given to me by an ex-girlfriend some years ago–during the “Dark Times”. I’ve kept it because it’s interesting and worldly, and because it reminds me of how far I’ve come in the intervening years. I may be only a superstition, but it’s “brought” good fortune so far!
