Knock on wood or knock on this large natural wood chandelier. I will do both. I want the luck to continue with this beautiful large chandelier. Not sure luck has anything to do with it. It’s more like a skilled craftsman took the time to mill a wood chandelier in the shape of a bell. The result is not only a stunning chandelier but a work of art. We don’t expect hard wood to be so graceful but somehow this artisan made it happen.
Large Natural Wood Chandelier
Knock on wood is a common metaphor that was originally used to ward off suspected impending bad luck. 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. Or else bad luck may soon follow. Similarly, too much of a good thing can’t be true. 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. Of course there is also knock on wood while touching your head. A little self deprecation won’t hurt anyone. 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.
