Maneki-Neko

Creative Koi

Japanese lucky cats are one the many symbols happily adopted by Western culture without a lot of knowledge behind the meaning. Wikipedia has an excellent description, but the short story is that they are meant to bring good luck or wealth to the owner. The paw is raised in beckoning, rather than waving as usually thought in western culture. I have a collection of them (6, in various colours and materials at last count), and while I can’t say they’ve necessarily brought me luck, I do like the figurines for their heritage, and the interesting folklore associated.

Do you have some kind of a symbol for luck? Has it worked? Please share!
