“Door god” toothpick box / Toothpick box

“Door god” toothpick box

My hometown is in the south of China. In Chinese traditional culture,the door god is patron saint of people. Every New Year,people put the door god's portrait on the door,which is said to be able to block the bad luck outside,the whole family will be safe in the new year. In the legend,the door gods are two powerful generals,they are wearing armor and holding swords. According to their characteristics, I designed this interesting toothpick box. A toothpick in their hands like a sword,this is interesting. There is a device inside the toothpick box. When you press the button,a toothpick will be lifted from the other end,which is convenient.
