The Japanese brush painting for the kanji design of the phrase "Good Fortune" consists of 14 strokes that make up the four elements from which the character is derived. The first component represents the element for the number one. The next element consists of the symbol for mouth. The third element represents a field or rice paddy. The final element represents spirit.
The meaning of the kanji character for "Good Fortune" comes from the two shapes created by the combination of the four elements: the shape of a table and the shape of a barrel. These are supposed to represent an offering to God as a tribute.
