1000: Seven gods arrive with treasure (Seikaku)

The seven gods bringing home their treasure ship, conveying wealth and good fortune to us all. They have a jolly demeanour, and their ornately decorated vessel carries the usual chests of gold coin, and also the prized red coral. There are no blank areas in the surroundings, which present more auspicious symbols: cranes, Mt. Fuji, a red snapper, and the Shinto emblems of the torii (ceromonial arch) and two rocks joined by a shimenawa (sacred rope).

Detail

No biographical details, but the artist Mori Seikaku specialises in animal and flower scroll paintings. He signs his work the traditional way, with the characters for his given (brush) name, Seikaku (lit. 'nest of the crane') and a seal of the same.
