From The seven gods of fortune series, the chopsticks design depicts Ebisu who is for Shinto the god of prosperous fishing and business, alike. Ebisu is often depicted carrying a sea bream under his left arm and a fishing rod in his right hand.
Ebisu, (恵比須, 恵比寿, 夷 or 戎) sole member of the gods believed to have originated from Japan, was originally known as Hiruko (蛭子), the first child of Izanagi and Izanami. Said to be born without bones, he eventually overcame his handicap to become the mirthful and auspicious Ebisu (hence one of his titles, "The Laughing God"). Jellyfish are also associated with this god and the fugu restaurants in Japan often incorporate Yebisu in their motif.
