Kotobuki Maneki Neko Lucky Cat Coin Bank with Karakusa Spiral Vine Pattern, Purple Description
Although there are several folktales about the origin of maneki neko, the most popular involves a stray cat and an impoverished shop owner. The story goes that despite being down on his luck and barely able to feed himself, the impoverished shop owner takes in a stray, hungry cat. Grateful for the shop owner’s charity, the cat then takes post outside, beckoning visitors into the shop. The cat, sitting on hind legs with one paw beckoning, eventually attracts many customers and turns around the shop owner’s misfortunes. The tale of maneki neko and the widespread belief across Japan of its power as a lucky charm, led ceramic artisans over the years to create different colored cat figurines to bring good luck and fortune for different occasions. This purple maneki neko is said to strengthen friendship and ensure long lasting ties. It is crafted and hand painted in Tokoname, a famous pottery area known as one of the six oldest and most important kiln sites in Japan. The contemporary colors and patterns which are intricately hand painted are a great example of Japan’s next generation taking something traditional and giving it a fresh, new twist.
