Antique Sterling Silver Sculpture of Ebisu 恵比須 or Hiruko 蛭子

This is a hand made statue of Ebisu - the weak child overcame many hardships, grew legs the rest of his skeletal structure at the age of three, and became the god Ebisu. He remains slightly crippled and deaf, but mirthful and auspicious nonetheless and hence has the title, "The laughing god". He is often depicted wearing a tall hat—the Kazaori Eboshi (風折烏帽子) — holding a rod and a large sea bass. On sale soon as item code SG0006.
