Japanese Bronze Sculpture of Yebisu the God of Fishermen and Prosperity
Yebisu, or Ebisu, is the Japanese patron god of fisherman. He is also one of the Seven Lucky Gods who bring wealth and abundance, luck, and merriment. His portly physique suggests the abundance he represents.
This bronze sculpture depicts a laughing Yebisu having just caught a fish. Note the reddish patina of the fish since red sea bass is typically the type of fish caught by him.
Shrines in Japan are crowded during the New Year season by worshippers paying their respects and praying for continued prosperity.
