Lucky Cats & Daruma
At Orientique Asianliving, we offer you various kinds of lucky cats and daruma that are collected by us from Japan.
Lucky cats are known as Maneki Neko in Japanese, which means “beckoning cat.” The cat has its paw raised as if it's waving in good fortune for its owners.
Daruma is a hollow and round Japanese traditional doll modeled after Bodhidharma, the founder of the Zen tradition of Buddhism. It is designed without eyes because its owner can draw an eye when making a wish. After the wish comes true, the owner can draw another eye to complete it.
Different color lucky cats and daruma have different lucky meanings:
- Red is for better work and bright career
- Green is for good grades in the study
- Pink is for meeting your true love or keeping a good relationship with your partner
- Yellow is for earning more money
- Black is for avoiding bad luck
- White is for better health and longevity
- Gold is for having a better fortune
