You take "bullfinch" (lie) (chicken), and change

Bullfinch (lie) is beautiful small bird slightly bigger than sparrow inhabiting the Sea of Japan coast.
Because having got rid of pest at the time of festival of Dazaifu Tenman-gu Shrine and character of bullfinch are similar to character of * (calyx), it is thought that connection is deep with Tenjin. We were considered to be chicken which caused good luck and were got close as lucky charm wooden bullfinch between the Edo era and general public.
