How lucky does one get when they have a collection of the Seven Lucky Gods of Japan? Made of hand painted ceramic, these little miniature versions of the lucky gods in Japanese mythology and folklore have hand painted, cute expressions and are dressed in charming caricatures of their distinguished costumes. Included in this collection are the gods named from left to right: Fukujyuroku (the green figurine, god of wisdom, good luck, happiness, wealth, virility and longevity), Benten (pink figurine, the goddess of knowledge, art and beauty, especially music), Bishamonten (the blue figurine, for the god of warriors and gamblers), Ebisu (yellow figurine, for the god of fisher and merchants or business), Daikoku (light blue figurine, for the god of family wealth in commerce and trade), Jyuryogin (the green figurine for the god of wealth, wisdom and happiness for our long lives), Hotei (black figurine, for the god of happiness, abundance, laughter and happiness)
The special gods that make up the lucky seven are believed to return to earth during the New Year celebrations aboard a lucky vessel called the Takarabune and bestow fantastic gifts to those who are deemed worthy. Often times the lucky New Year envelopes that are filled with gifts of money and distributed to deserving children are decorated with renderings of the lucky ship or the seven gods.
These versions of the seven lucky gods will be well received by believers of all ages and even if you don't believe, a little bit of luck never hurt anybody. These ceramic figurines are perfect stocking stuffers and would be great as hostess or party gift. Hand painted and comes in little fabric pouch. Made in Japan.
