26 Maneki-neko Beckoning Cat Display in San Francisco, California

These waving porcelain cats are called Maneki-neko in Japanese. I assumed they were another souvenir for tourists visiting Chinatown. But by tradition, they supposedly give good luck to the owner. And when they are placed in front of a store with a moving left paw, which the four were doing in this display, they are beckoning customers to come inside.
