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

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.
