Maneki- neko lamp.

Today is New Years day, and I just finished another project with my Christmas present, my beautiful scroll saw.
It is my Maneki- neko lamp, very appropriate for today's date.
It is a fortune cat that is believed to bring good luck. Or as I was told growing up, the cat will bring you money.
For a beginner's project, I decided just to cut out the shape of the cat, and the outlines for the face and paws.
Then the cat itself was glued in a piece of acrylic, making it look like he is floating.
So for 2016, I wish all the luck, good fortune, and prosperity for everyone.

And a enlightened life.
