Details

The Ho ho bird comes from the mythical Japanese version of the Phoenix, with a long beak, curving neck, flowing tail, claws and crest. Originally the bird was said to bring luck, symbolizing good fortune; specifically longevity, fidelity and wisdom. It is often portrayed as an amalgam of several birds, including the phoenix, pheasant, stork, heron and birds of paradise. Although most commonly referred to as the Ho ho, the mysterious creature takes on many other names, including hoo, foo, ho-wo, hobo, howo, ho and sacred river! Ho ho birds occur frequently within Rococo decoration from 18th century France, commonly on mirrors, mantel clocks and candle stands. Ho ho birds first starting appearing in England in the 18th century.
