Ebisu by danctheduck Ebisu by danctheduck
There are seven lucky gods that are celebrated in Japan. One of them is Ebisu, god of prosperity and fishermen. He traditionally holds a Tai, or red sea bream (pagrus major), an auspicious fish that is often used as a symbol of good luck. Just looking at this picture means that glorious things are about to happen in your life.

I also happen to be a fan because there is a delightful Japanese brew called 'Yebisu' that is also named after the cheerful fellow.

Very nice picture of Ebisu!
It brings back memories from when I walked past his statue in, I believe it was Shibuya last Summer. :)

Let's have a box of Yebisu for good luck :D

I love the fishes expression. It has such an overall cheerful aspect to it; the contrasting colours really make it stand out. Chou kawaii.

His blueness and fatness reminds me of Ebisumaru from Ganbare Goemon. I'm sure there's a connection of some sort.

See, now not only do you have the best Maneki Neko piece on da, but you've gone and done a wonderful Ebisu! I am thrilled! (and croosing my fingers that it gets added to your selection of prints...)

I have to wonder how the sea bream feels about all of this fishing.
Cute! I like the smile on the worm. =)

The colouring on the scales on the big fish is really beautiful, by the way. The light's been captured well.
