Caganer Figurines are hilarious little good luck charms that have a surprisingly deep and religious history. These figurines are crafted in Catalonia and traditionally depict a Catalan peasant defecating in the nativity scene. This odd act of relief is believed to promote a good harvest for the following year.

Over the years, the Caganer Figurines have changed from peasants to pop stars, soccer players, and even the queen of England! Check out a few Caganer Figurines in the featured gallery.
