“Ebisu” is the Japanese god of fishermen, luck, and workingmen and agriculture. He is one of the Seven Gods of Fortune (Shichifukujin), and the only one of the seven to originate purely from Japan without any Hindu or Chinese influence.
This is a painting of Ebis by Katsunobu Kawahito. Although Ebis is generally painted with a sea bream, globefish are painted in this work. A globefish is called “fugu” in Japan. Fugu sounds like “fuku”, which means good fortune. This is why Katsunobu Kawahito painted the globefish. Katsunobu Kawahito’s sense of humor and the depiction of Ebis, which is popular as a lucky symbol, are very heartwarming.
