|Comment||There are 2 main design elements on this yogi:
1. Suzume (sparrow) Sparrows are represented in Japanese folklore as being "obsessed with its honor, especially the repaying of debts."
2. The Three Friends of Winter, also known as "Sho Chiku Bai" in Japanese, are the pine, bamboo, and plum plants. . Together they symboize "virtue, long life & happiness." The Japanese observed that the pine, bamboo and plum do not wither as the cold days deepen into the winter season unlike many other plants.
