In Japan, a Maneki Neko is known as a lucky and beckoning cat. Porcelain Maneki Neko cats can be found in china shops throughout the country. These cats are instantly recognizable by the way in which their left paw is raised in the Japanese beckoning manner (i.e., summoning a person by waving the hand palm out, instead of with the palm in, as Westerners often do), and are revered by the Japanese. Those dependent upon the public for success, such as restaurant owners and merchants, keep a Maneki Neko as their mascot in hopes of attracting customers. A beckoning cat can also be found in the house altar of the demimonde (a class of women on the fringes of respectable society, depending on money from rich and usually upper-class lovers).

This Black earthen Maneki Neko Figurine/Bank bears the prospect for banishing evils and protecting from illness. It is also a bank. Made in Japan.
