Various waving lucky cat for sale at a curio shop. According to Japanese and other Asian cultures, the "Maneki-neko" or beckoning cat figurine brings good luck and fortune to its owner.
I love the Maneki-neko figures. I have quite a few here, mostly from Japan, but from China, U.S., and elsewhere, too :)
I love it, a bunch of lucky cats, and such a bargain. I hope that you got yourself several.
As you say, they are "Manekineko". I'm glad that I found them in other country.
Cute, but I want real waving cats..lol
They are popular in Singapore too. Almost every retail shop or company has one at the entrance. :)
There is a shop here on the Pier that sells the exact same cats, I'll have to look how much they charge for them as a comparision to the $3.49 in your photo!
I love these figures, I used to see them quite a lot around Honolulu, though they are harder to find where I am now! A lovely sight.
Only recently did I learn that these bring luck. I'm going to get me one soon.Emma and Buster
catsynth: I wonder if these were made in China too. :DYogi: I'm not sure I believe in good luck charms, but some are cute.cocomino: I think these cats have invaded the earth and are probably seen in many places.caite: I wish I could teach a real cat to wave on command.EastCoastLife: I hope the cats are making the businesses prosperous.llandudnopictures: I am curious how much are the cats in your country.LondonLulu: These are available to go to a good home, perhaps to yours. :DPhoto Cache: Let me know if have better luck after purchasing one.
I heard that whether or not the left or right hand raised meant something different, but I have never gotten a clear story on what that was. I love the whole shelf of them, that makes for quite the shot, and golly, that is a bargain at $3.49
And so everyone is so lucky after owning one.
Welcome, please come in.Greetings,Filip
