Benten and Hotei

Paper Mache
I started 3 more gods of Happiness (or gods of good fortune)
I would like to do a set of all 7 one of these days.

From left to right, Benten, the goddess of beauty and art, holding a paint brush, holding a musical instrument and a paint brush (middle) and right, Hotei the chubby minded optimist always happy, distinguished by his huge belly which indicates a largeness of soul and an inward wealth of resources, characteristic of a man who attained the wisdom of Buddhism.
