Symbolizing Prosperity & Protection
Maneki Neko Waving Cat ~ Solar Waving Cat!!
As far back as 5000 years ago the cat has symbolized prosperity and protection for various cultures.
The cat was seen as a symbol of prosperity because it protected the grain from the rats in ancient Egypt and Sudan.
This cat used to sit in front of the Gotokuji temple in Tokyo and held up his paw
to beckon people in according to a Japanese story.
This temple still exists today and cat lovers from around the world go there to pray for the good health of their pets.
In Thailand, the goddess Nang Kwok, also has her hand raised just like our cat friend here,
to symbolize protection and abundance.
