Item No. FA-Bizen-God-Fukurokuju-895 | $895
Fukurokuju is one of the Seven Lucky Gods in Japanese mythology. It is said that during his human incarnation, he was a sennin; a philosopher who could exist without eating food. The sacred book tied to his staff either contains the lifespan of every person on earth or a magical scripture. He is accompanied by a crane and a turtle, which are considered to be symbols of longevity. He is also sometimes accompanied by a black deer (ancient legends say a deer turns black if it is over 2000 years old).
He is the only member of the Seven Lucky Gods credited with the ability to revive the dead.
