"Three eyed Maneki Neko" (3-eyed good luck cat)
Maneki Neko (good luck cats) often feature in my work and I obsessively collect good luck cats, they're all over my house.
The difference with this cat is the third eye takes you inside my mind and instead of a friendly welcoming cat, this one is a monster with sharp teeth, representing the monsters from my Nightmarish fantasies.
