$ 400.00
Altered book, acryla gouache, thread, yarn, bell, wire
5 1/2" x 8 1/4" x 15/16" (wall hung or free standing)

This book sculpture is based on the Japanese "Maneki-neko" - beckoning cat. Traditionally they are the Japanese bobtail calico cat. The right paw raised is meant to bring good fortune to your home (where as the left is meant for a place of business). The coy is symbolic of abundance and good fortune. The book used is History of Nations: Japan printed in 1898.
