[Tex/LaTex] How to pick a specific symbol from a specific font


Using LuaLatex, I need two very specific symbols from two very specific fonts, namely from the ZapfDingbats and the WingDings font.

I understand how I could use the fontspec package to set those fonts as standard fonts for my document. But for obvious reasons, I don't want that.

How do I pick a specific symbol from a specific font (with LuaLatex)?

While still using PDFLatex, I used the pifont package to get the Dingbats character:


Doesn't work for WingDings, though, which is why I switched to LuaLatex. However, not only did I understand that using such "font packages" is deprecated with LuaLatex, but I also don't have a clue how I'd go about picking a specific symbol from the WingDings font…
