Whimsical Maneki Neko charms
Asian home decor often includes good luck charms. In Japan, good luck charms are plentiful and the belief in their power stems from ancient times. The legend of Maneki Neko charms, or "lucky cat," originates with a famous woman in Yoshiwara, Japan named Usogumo. Usogumo had a cat who was trying to warn her about a snake on the ceiling by pulling at her dress. Thinking the pet was bothering his mistress, a servant slayed the cat, sending the severed head into the air where it killed the snake. Because she was grieving for her lost friend, an artist carved the feline's likeness out of imported aloes wood. The story and the cat became famous, and so Maneki Neko charms grew in popularity. Also made of bronze, porcelain and clay, these lucky cats most often are poised with the left paw next to their ear. Placed in a window in stores and restaurants, they are believed to bring luck and prosperity.
