A picture for my friend [ profile] jade_teacup.
Shou Xing - one of the three deities of Taoist Fu Lu Shou concept (in China), or Fukurokuju, one of the Seven Lucky Gods (in Japan) is the God of Longevity. I tried to not to forget all of his traditional attributes: the staff made out of the ginseng root, a peach that symbolizes immortality, and a gourd filled with Elixir of Life. I also added Crane - a symbol of long life, and Chinese red bats for good luck.
The character on the panel is "Shou"="Longevity"


Картинка для [ profile] jade_teacup.
Шоусин (в китае) или Фукурокудзю (в Японии) - бог долголетия и мудрости. Я страралась не забыть все его традиционные атрибуты - посох из корня женьшеня, тыкву с элексиром жизни, и персик в руке, символизирующий бессмертие. Журавль на Дальнем Востоке считается символом долголетия, а красные летучие мышки в Китае символизируют счастье.
Иероглиф "Шоу"="Долголетие".

Thank you! :)
Those bats is my favorite part of the picture! I think I am going to make a classy Chinese lucky bat design - I am not so good at Chinese stylization, as Ben, but I want to give it a try anyways:)

What an absolutely beautiful image! I just love the colors you chose, and the shading of the whole piece. The crane is a gorgeous addition, and the detail in the draping of his robes and the movement of his hair is just amazing. I love it!
