tawara ushi, tawaraushi 俵牛 cow with straw bundles

An auspicious amulet for a good rice harvest. Well loved by the farmers of the Edo period.
Cows and horses were the most important means of transportation.
Cows were much slower than horses, but in the end they all reached their goal.
One of the oldest versions is a doll from Fushimi 伏見人形, Kyoto.
The dolls are made of clay or papiermachee.
