Mini Three-Headed Sanmen Daikoku & Zushi (Tabernacle) Set
Sold as Set Only (statue and zushi not sold separately)


Japanese Reading of the Chinese Characters
Japanese = Sanmen Daikoku 

  • Wood = Boxwood (Jp. = Tsuge)
  • Zushi = H 11.7 cm W 6.0 cm Depth 4.3 cm (statue is smaller)
  • Two pieces: (1) diety statue; (2) zushi (tabernacle)
  • Daikoku, the God of Wealth, Farmers, Rice, & Agriculture, also appears in Japan as Sanmen (Three-Headed) Daikoku. In this manifestation, he is believed to protect the Three Buddhist Treasures (the Buddha, the law, and the community of followers), and to be a patron of the kitchen. This iconography is very similar to another kitchen deity named Koujin-sama (see our sister site, outside link).
