There are many people who swear by the value of good luck charms. The ever popular rabbits foot, “lucky sweater,” or necklace charm with any number of different Saints or Angels are just a few examples of popular Talismans. Each, in there own way, are believed to offer protection or create good luck. Depending on what culture or religious affiliations that one comes from, statues of Buddha, Saints, and Crucifixes, are often believed to protect or influence a home or person wearing them. The amount of different types of cultural icons, symbolic images, sculptures, and amulets are too vast to list. While they may vary in form and meaning, they are all forms of Talismans. What do all of these and other types of Talismans have in common, if anything? Do they really influence us in any real way, or are they just silly superstitious nonsense?
