Title: Good Fortune Multiplied

A tower of auspicious figures, with Daikoku, god of commerce and prosperity at the bottom, his bag resting behind him. He stands on two rice containers, each decorated with the emblems of three jewels. Next is Fukusuke, and at the top is  Ofuku, the Goddess of Mirth, dancing with her fan. Above them is the rising sun with a crane, all symbols of good fortune, auspiciousness and longevity. There are a series of numbers listed at right; perhaps these are lucky numbers for the year?
