The ancient ideogram 壽 depicting longevity, which in this beautiful shodo (書道) calligraphy work we see written in its simplified form 寿, in the tradition of the Far East represents, together with happiness (福) and prosperity (禄), one of the three most important auspicious symbols of life.

These three goals, visually represented in the Chinese mythology by the Three Stars (三星), ie the three deities Fu Xing (福星), Lu Xing (祿星) and Shou Xing (寿星), in Japan are summarized in the figure of Fukurokuju (福禄寿), one of the Seven Lucky Gods shichifukujin (七福神).

The work, made on a thick shikishi (色紙) cardboard with golden edges by the female calligrapher Keisen (恵泉), is in very good condition.
