Old Japanese buildings are mostly made of wood. A cicada is believed to protect a building from fire.

It looks beautiful !!! I have heard that even in France they have tiny porceline cicadas placed in homes to bring good luck. We too believe that caicadas foretell happy days :)))

This is precious! The real ones are "noxious"! I had an attack of semis in my balcony for the previous two weeks! Why do they come into the balcony???? There was one always hanging on my pink towel!

@Japanalia: Cicadas like pink towel... It might be a great biological discovery !?
I like discovering the symbolism - I found two cicada sloughs on my terrace, one was firmy holding onto the wooden shutter, and I'm very happy to learn that this will protect my house !
And I like how you present it here :)

@Lulette: I'm glad your house is protected by a cicada. ;)
