Vintage 1940, 1.3 kilos solid statue of Fukurokuju of the 7 gods numbe - $100 (Forest Lawn, Calgary)

Vintage statue of one of the 7 gods of good luck, the name of this god is Fukurokuju is the god of happiness, longevity and wealth Fukurokuju is usually portrayed as bald with long whiskers and an elongated forehead. He is said to be an incarnation of the Southern Polestar. The sacred book tied to his staff either contains the lifespan of every person on earth or a magical scripture. you can find a lot of other information on the 7 gods on google. The statue is made of a solid piece of stone or glass it is not hollow or does not feel hollow, I believe this piece to be lacquered though I am not 100 percent sure, it has a circled number at the back 726 I have no clue as to what it means could be a makers mark

This Statue measures 9"Height x 5"Length x 4" Width and weighs 1.3 kilograms, This piece is in very very good condition with no damage to the lacquer or the statue no cracks chips or breaks, the bottom has a piece of protective felt on the bottom.
