 【Features and Design】

Maneki-neko are said to have become widespread in the late Edo period as lucky charms that bring happiness and prosperity in business.

It is said that the right paw of maneki-neko beckons “money”, and the left paw beckons “people”, and that the higher the maneki-neko’s paws are relative to its ears, the further away it can beckon.

The coloring of its body can also have various different meanings.

This maneki-neko in this piece is an orthodox calico patterned cat, which is said to bring great fortune.

Eight materials are used: walnut, red camphor, kobushi, zelkova, hoo, kaya, jindai katsura, and cherry.
