Lucky luck cats!
© Hajime Okamoto

1000: Lucky luck cats! (Okamoto)

A jovial collection of maneki neko, the cats that beckon good fortune — and presumably the more cats, the more fortune they can bring! Cats are a speciality of Okamoto's inimitable style, but they are also accompanied by a number of Daruma dolls and luck red snapper fish.

Born in Osaka in 1942, Hajime Okamoto is an artist with a distinctive and very jolly style, who specialises in cats — particularly the beckoning bringers of good fortune.

He signs his paintings with a seal, and a stylised form of his name in Roman letters (with his family name last).
