Just for a bit of background on these special auctions, as I make my pendants and figurines, to me these are more than just casts. Being hand painted, every design is a unique piece of art, and has felt like the pendant is imbued with a bit of the essence of that individual character. As I create these characters, and as I paint the ornament, the story of the character is just as important as the colors and markings, and is consciously kept in mind throughout the painting process. To push the idea further, I've decided to introduce these limited character auctions. On top of the Shisa already being limited edition, these particular paint jobs will never show up again on another Shisa ornament. You'll not only be adopting your very own mini guardian lion-dog, but you'll be able to physically hold your new character! These will be a rare treat, only once every one or two months. It is my hope that these rare beasts give people a tangible way to explore personalities and adventures, which they can share with others in the form of ornaments, stories, and art!

Character Background:
It is not uncommon for Shisa residing in solely in the spirit world to take on characteristics of the first piece of the physical world which they touch. The energies of something as humble as a creek or stone can instantly mold the very appearance, personality, and name of a Shisa. When those natural occurrences have something as powerful as a myth or name attached to them, the Shisa's story tends to parallel that story. These two colorful Shisa had taken on the mythology of Halcyone and Ceyx when the beauty of the stars moved them closer to the wonder of nebulas. The myths attributed to the stars influenced their physical form. Just as in the myth, despite her anxiety surrounding his leaving, Ceyx goes on a journey and dies while he is away. In the story of these two Shisa, the heavy grief is overcome by the power of their love when Halcyone travels back to the spirit world to bring her lover back. The price both pay is that their physical bodies were no longer intact, by no means should they have been allowed to come back. Yet in a twist of fate, they're allowed to re-enter the physical world as Kingfisher birds. While most Shisa relish a good battle, having gone through such a painful loss, these two bring peace and rest wherever they travel.
