The Maneki Neko cat is a very popular Japanese symbol associated with wealth and luck.
Maneki Neko literally means "beckoning cat" and the symbolism varies slightly depending on which paw is raised.
If the left paw is raised it is said the cat will attract customers so this variation is very popular with business owners and the cat is often placed next to the till or displayed in the window.
If the right paw is raised it is said the cat will attract money, success and prosperity of different kinds, so this variation is popular among all strata of society.
In this piece both paws are raised so both meanings apply.
