Fukurokuju , from Mythological Japan : the symbolisms of mythology in relation to Japanese art, with illustrations drawn in Japan, by native artists (1902).
JosephXAdded by JosephX

Fukurokuju is the god, not goddess, of luck, wealth, and longevity (Fuku=luck, Roku=Wealth, and ju=longevity).  He is often depicted with an abnormally tall forehead and has long whiskers.  He is often accompanied by the Crane and Turtle, which are symbols of longevity, and is also accompanied by a black deer (Deers turn black after 2000 years).  He is the only member of the seven lucky gods to be able to revive a human.
