Description
 
This listing is for a single shinobigoma - a horse made with hand-tied bundles of rice straw.

These horses are a type of amulet for making a good marriage match but also promoting a good harvest and protecting rural animals.

This shinobigoma features an explosion of colorful paper coming from the saddle. The horse stands on a wooden 6"x4" base.

Near Kyoto we have seen life-size versions of these made in the rice fields each year and then burned in the fields after harvest time.

8"x8"
