Depicted traditionally with other signs of good fortune: a deer, peaches of immortality, and a pomegranate which he holds in his hand indicating progeny as plentiful as the seeds. He is easily recognized by his huge, round forehead. Some small cracks at the bottom, and hand and top of staff are cracked, but otherwise in good condition. Artists name painted on bottom. Accession File states: "Chinese-carving of Sheo H sin, the god of long life , carved of hardwood. ca. Middle Manchu Dynasty-1875."
