Mmmmm....i really like this card...coz the event taking place is set in a snowy atmosphere....the bright colours of the clothes contrasted to the white snow give some special feeling
The people on the card are gathered around something which is called "A Good Fortune Mesh Dipper".
Well, its name may suggest what it actually is...but when i typed "good fortune mesh dipper" into google, it didnt give me any results...except a flickr gallery with the actual postcard....from the person from whom i had received this card in the first place :)
So we'll go with some word by word analysis...and come up with something
the "good fortune" of course, suggests that its something used in order to acquire good fortune to follow you, good health, happines, wealth, love etc etc....
Now, I encountered a problem with the 'mesh dipper' coz as a phrase it aint given in any thesaurus/dictionary
well, 'a mesh' is "any knit, woven, or knotted fabric of open texture"
a dipper, on the other hand may mean:
1. a person or thing that dips.
|2.||a cuplike container with a long handle, used for dipping liquids.|
so, if you combine it all, it maks sense...it some kind of a woven container, which has i guess, some kind of times (food or objects, i dont know) which are handed out to people, and thats supposed to bring you luck throughout the year...right? wrong?
if anyone can give me an EXACT explanation and definition of this, id be thankful...maybe someone who had actually seen one or witness a situation as the one on the postcard?
