1940s Niedersachsen: “Hans in Luck with Happiness Signpost”

– Hand-painted on plywood.
– I love this sign post idea pointing “to happiness” (ins Glueck). And I love it that in the USA you’re officially entitled to pursue your happiness! And that’s by law! By the way, the English translation “Hans in Luck” is unlucky, this fairy tale wood picture is rather about happiness, not luck. In German, we have only one word, “Glück” meaning luck OR happiness. So: “Happy Hans”? Hard, because Hans thinks himself to be lucky but he’s “only” happy in the end!
