Manekineko: The Lucky Beckoning Cat
Manekineko, or the Beckoning Cat, is a beloved symbol of good luck and prosperity in Japanese culture. These charming figurines can be found in many Japanese homes, businesses, and shops, where they are believed to bring good fortune and prosperity to their owners.
The origins of the Manekineko can be traced back to the Edo period in Japan, when a wealthy merchant took in a stray cat that he believed had brought him good fortune. The cat would sit outside his shop and beckon customers in with its paw. The merchant was so grateful for the cat's help that he commissioned a statue of it, which became known as the Manekineko.
The Manekineko is often depicted with one paw raised, beckoning customers or wealth into a shop or home. The color and design of the figurine can also have different meanings, such as gold for wealth, white for good luck, or black for protection from evil spirits.
