What a delightful expression. Simply it makes you feel warm and cheerful. This rare clay Ebisu mask is a good size and was hanged at a home for quite sometime. Ebisu god is one of the seven lucky gods and it has been worshipped in all over Japan. The Ebisu is symbolized as a god of fortune for farming, fishing, and food businesses especially. He is depicted wearing an eboshi-hat and holding a red snapper. The original paint has partially been peeled due to the age yet the mask still retains a soft and attractive appearance. The mask has "original wire" to hang. Ca. Early to mid 1900s. Dimensions: 9.5"wide 10.5" long 3"thick (profile). Please also visit our main site www.ichoya.com
