Append a NumPy array to a NumPy array

I have a numpy_array. Something like

[ a b c ]
.

And then I want to append it into another NumPy array (just like we create a list of lists). How do we create an array of NumPy arrays containing NumPy arrays?

I tried to do the following without any luck

>>> M = np.array([])
>>> M
array([], dtype=float64)
>>> M.append(a,axis=0)
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module>
AttributeError: 'numpy.ndarray' object has no attribute 'append'
>>> a
array([1, 2, 3])

Answer
In [1]: import numpy as np

In [2]: a = np.array([[1, 2, 3], [4, 5, 6]])

In [3]: b = np.array([[9, 8, 7], [6, 5, 4]])

In [4]: np.concatenate((a, b))
Out[4]: 
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [4, 5, 6],
       [9, 8, 7],
       [6, 5, 4]])

or this:

In [1]: a = np.array([1, 2, 3])

In [2]: b = np.array([4, 5, 6])

In [3]: np.vstack((a, b))
Out[3]: 
array([[1, 2, 3],
       [4, 5, 6]])
