Goard (hyotan) and geometric images.

In Japan, the hyotan (goard) has been considered, from ancient times, a symbol of good luck . The hyotan has a very hard shell and is usually narrow in the middle. The Japanese found light hearted humor in their varied shapes. It had practical uses as a container to carry seeds for the farmer, as a jug to hold water or sake for the thirsty person, and as a continer for medicine.
