This nice bronze figure is a Japanese Daikoku figure of a man with one foot on a food basket and a sack on his back, signed on the lower back edge of his garment. Daikoku or Daikokuten is widely known in Japan as the happy-looking god of wealth, farmers, food, and good fortune, although in earlier centuries he was considered a fierce warrior deity. Also considered one of seven lucky gods. This bronze is in very good condition, with minor imperfections, rubs, and expected wear from age and use. Dimensions: 13 ” h x 6 ½” w x 5” d.
