Unusual creative carving style- first we have seen in over twenty years of business.... This pair carved in "ittibori" one block style and some dealers and collectors may also call this style. "Mingei" art (a kind of Japanese local folk art and understood as art of the people). Provenance: old Takayama family collection acquired on our most recent trip to Japan.
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. All our Asian works of art are accompanied by our lifetime guarantee of authenticity.
