Ceramic Maneki Tora = Lucky Tiger
The Japanese have incorporated the Chinese Zodiac into their complex system of lucky items. One particularly nice combination is making Maneki Nekos in the shape of the Zodiac animals, in this case for the Year of the Tiger. I like his bright red color which some say brings good health. --donaldmoon (birthdate = Tiger)This photo was shot on film.
