Sometimes referred to as “Lucky Cat” or “Beckoning Cat”, the Maneki Neko is a common statue from Asia that is believed to bring good luck and fortune. The cat, while it appears to be waving, is actually beckoning people and money to enter an establishment. This is why many Asian restaurants and businesses will have one placed near their entrance.
The cat measures approximately 5" wide x 6 1/2" tall. It takes one double A battery.
