Before the stupid Nazi's ruined it for everyone, the swastika was a symbol for good luck, life, sun, power and strength. It's been around for so long that it even predates the ancient Egyptian symbol, the Ankh. It has been used as a positive symbol for thousands of years by countless cultures... Chinese, Japanese, Indian and Native American to name a few. I painted this 3" antique porcelain doll for my friend Linda's birthday. I chose swastikas as the main theme because I wanted her to have a powerful good luck charm... and the best birthday ever of course! F you Nazi's! We're taking it back!
