Installation Instructions:

There is no special instructions to install this set but there is a story behind it :).

The Maneki Neko (Beckoning Cat, also known as Lucky Cat or Fortune Cat) is a common Japanese sculpture which is believed to bring good luck to its owner. The Maneki Neko upraised paw imitates Japanese beckoning gesture (with palm out).

One of the legends goes that a wealthy lord was taking shelter under a tree near a temple during a thunderstorm. The lord saw the temple cat beckoning to him and followed; a moment later the tree was struck by lightning. The first Maneki Neko was made in honor of that cat.
