Historical Background

In Japanese mythology, Ebisu is one of the seven Gods of Fortune, said to be the god of fishermen, workingmen, and good luck. He is also the guardian of the health of children. According to legend he was born with no bones (or no arms and legs) and was cast into the sea before the age of three. When he eventually washed ashore he was cared for by Ainu Ebisu Saburo. By three years of age he had regrown his skeleton (or limbs) and become the god Ebisu. He remained deaf and slightly crippled, but extremely jovial and is thus depicted laughing (so titled "The Laughing God"). He is frequently paired with the god Daikokuten, the god of wealth; both are occasionally grouped with Fukurokuju and coined "The Three Gods of Good Fortune".
