In the COVID-19 era, cleanliness has shown itself not only to be scientific, but something that is almost supersitious in its ability to ward off disease. Bezalel Incubator, a division of the Bezalel Academy of Arts and Design in Israel, has designed soap in  the shape of lucky charms to represent how hand washing has become a ritualistic practice. The soap takes the form of Chinese numismatic charms, also known as Yansheng Coins.
