“For safe birth and children to grow up strong and healthy”

A paper mache dog carrying a toy drum is used as an amulet for safe birth and good health for children. The yellow-dyed hemp rope is a good luck charm for children to be strong and good-mannered. Its yellow color also represents gold or money, indicating the parents’ wish that their children be free of starvation and financial hardships
