Maneki Neko Mask by merimask Maneki Neko Mask by merimask
Maneki Neko is the famous Lucky Cat of Japan. I love these little guys...they are all over the place in Asia.

Lucky cats are generally three-colored cats. I chose a very traditional depiction of a lucky cat for my mask creation.

As always, this mask is an original leather mask sculpted entirely by hand...I use no molds or forms.

This mask & many others are available for sale on my Etsy site: [link]

This mask is so much fun! I feel that if I were to wear it, I would have to sit and pose just like one of the lucky cats. I have so many of these cute little things at home, and this really evokes the thought of all of them.

LOL yes! And you'd need a golden bell around your neck... It'd be an awfully cute costume.

I think that it would need to be a fairly oversized gold bell, but it could definitely be done!
