I would like to thank Etienne Sandrin for sending this photograph of Chris Marker’s gravesite in the Montparnasse cemetary. He wrote on April 2, 2014: “We have put – last Monday – Chris’s ashes in the Montparnasse cemetery in Paris.”

Here is a link to the pdf map of the Cimetière du Montparnasse, and below an image (click to enlarge). Guillaume stands at his master’s spot.
I have also made available a printable pdf of another photograph taken by Laurence Braunberger of Films du Jeudi. Many thanks to Laurence.
The maneki-neko (Japanese: 招き猫?, literally “beckoning cat”) is a common Japanese figurine (lucky charm, talisman), usually made of ceramic in modern times, which is often believed to bring good luck to the owner. The figurine depicts a cat (traditionally a calico Japanese Bobtail) beckoning with an upright paw… The maneki-neko is sometimes also called the welcoming cat, lucky cat, money cat, happy cat, or fortune cat in English.Source
