Sitting cat hina dolls in a cherry blossom patterned kimono. Hina dolls are decorated to pray for the healthy and happy growth of children, as it is believed that they will take the place of children and protect them from accidents and illnesses.
The gorgeous golden panels included in the set with the cat are called 'byobu', a type of furniture used to divide and decorate a room. In Japan, they used to be an indispensable part of daily life as wind protection and as partitions between spaces.
In Japan, cats are famous as beckoning cats and other animals of good luck. Since cats can see even in the pitch dark of night, they have been regarded since ancient times as a symbol of good luck and protection from evil, and are said to be lucky animals that bring happiness.
