Japanese Gods Prosperity and Business Finely Sculpted Antique Hand-Carved, Pair

About

Japan, a wonderful pair finely hand-carved hardwood sculptures of Ebisu and Daikoko, two of Japan's seven lucky gods signifying prosperity, good business, and patron of fishermen, circa Taisho period (1912-1926). Unusual creative carving style- first we have seen in over twenty years of business! This pair carved in ittibori one block style. Superb surfaces and patina. Distinctive one-of-a-kind pair style. Provenance: old Takayama family collection acquired on our most recent trip to Japan. Only one. History: Ebusu is the god of prosperity and wealth in business, and of abundance in crops, cereals and food in general; the patron of fishermen and therefore is represented with fishermen's costumes such as a typical hat, a fishing rod in his right hand and a fish. Daikoko is the god of commerce and prosperity. There are other characteristics which have also been attributed to him, such as being the patron of cooks, farmers, bankers, and protector of crops. He is usually depicted with a bag full of valuable objects. Lifetime Guarantee of Authenticity. All our Asian works of art are accompanied by our lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
