Questions about this piece?


Jurojin, his name in kanji literally can be translated as the Longevity-Old-Man. He is believed to be an incarnation of the Star God of Longevity administers the span of life on earth for mankind; and also worshipped as the patron of scholarly success. Jurojin wears the robes of a scholar with perhaps a Shinto style head-dress. Like Fukurokuju, with whom he is often confused, Jurojin holds a staff, carries a scroll or a longevity peach, and perhaps a fan; he is usually accompanied by the minogame and or the deer; the later is said to be 1500 years old. It was believed that he who eats the flesh of that deer would live the age of 2000 years. Excellent antique condition. Signed to the base.
