Daikoku and Ebisu Wood Sculptures, Japan, Late Meiji Period

Daikoku and Ebisu, "God of Wealth" and "God of Fishermen" respectively, are two of the most recognizable and popular Gods of the famous Seven Gods of Japan.

Daikoku stands on bales of rice and carries a sack full of riches, and Ebisu carries a fish in his left arm and supposedly a fishing pole in his right hand. Scuplted from wood, some of the black finish has flaked off to general wear and tear; no chips or cracks, very good images and a handsome pair.

Late Meiji period, early 20th century antique.

Daikoku stands 9” x 5” x 5”. Ebisu measures 11” x 6” x 5”.
