Maneki Neko

My take on ‘Maneki Neko’ – Japanese lucky cats.

I’ve loved these funny little cat statues since I was little and own about a dozen of them. Their different colors represent different kinds of fortune – for example, pink lucky cats bring love and good relationships, while gold lucky cats are all about the cash money. The symbols on their coins say “ten million ryo” aka “a ridiculous amount of money”.
