Haniwa are clay figures often found in ancient Japanese burial sites, thought to provide good fortune and protection for those deceased.
Horses, humans, houses, and other objects were created using terracotta clay in ancient times, and were placed in kofun, also known as burial mounds.
Take a trip to the past and create your own haniwa creation to bring home for some protection and good fortune for yourself.
As a take-home bonus, create your own wooden purification idol used in ancient purification rituals. These idols were believed to transfer anything that was viewed as an impurity, evil, or sickness from human beings. Complete your time travel journey by sending your idol down a river or into the sea!
