Tiny Maneki-neko.

We went to the Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth a few weekends ago and I bought this teeny tiny lucky cat from the Modern Shop. Notice how small it is sitting on a penny for scale, it’s only about half an inch tall! 
For some reason I had always thought the lucky cat was Chinese, but it is actually Japanese according to the Wikipedia. After I took these pictures, while creating the .gif, I noticed that it has a frown instead of a smile. I wonder if that still means good luck!?
