Knock on wood or knock on this large wood frame chandelier. I might do both because I want the luck to continue with this beautiful chandelier. Not sure luck has anything to do with it. It’s more like a skilled wood worker took the time to mill a wood chandelier in the shape of a bell. And the result is not only a stunning chandelier but a work of art. We don’t often expect hard wood to be so graceful but somehow this artisan made it happen.
Large Wood Frame Chandelier
Knock on wood has become a common metaphor that was originally used to ward off suspected impending bad luck. But now it’s used as a tongue in cheek phrase for when someone has had a lot of good luck and they want that luck to continue. They fear that bad luck may be soon to follow. Similarly, too much of a good thing can’t last forever. It seems human nature has a tendency to be pessimistic rather than always expecting good things in life. Historically, the phrase originated with the British who say touch wood as a token of good fortune. And of course there is knock on wood while touching your head. A little self deprecation won’t hurt anyone. But one theory believes the phrase was derived from mythology. The association that wood from trees holds good spirits. Tap a tree to let the wood spirits inside know you are there. I’m not sure about that one. But I am sure that I like this bell shaped wood chandelier. Knock on wood.
