> 2013 / symbolic arrow / Studio Arhoj


Handmade of wood, feathers, gold and brass paper in a workshop in Tokyo, this hamaya is an arrow that destroys obstacles and demons.


Hamayas are a symbolic lucky charm from Shinto, the indigenous spirituality of Japan, that drive away bad luck and protect you from harm.

Use it in your home to ward off unwanted spirits and decorate your space with something new. You can hang it on your wall among other objects like pictures or masks from around the galaxy. Use several arrows for a wall installation to create a visual impact all while driving away negative energy around the house.

Discontinued in Denmark from Jan 2015 but still available from http://umamimart.com/products/hamaya-by-studio-arhoj
