This is Cai Shen, the God of Prosperity in China. Images of this semi-deity, along with the God of Good Luck are often seen around China (often on doors of homes) around Chinese New Years. This one is nicer than most, and is a real keeper, something to hang on your wall year after year to bring you and your family prosperity.
There's an inscription which reads,
This means roughly, "Bringing you prosperity from the north, west, east, and south" (or prosperity coming from all directions).

This is a very detailed painting that is mounted to a silk wall scroll. A lot of work went into this. It actually takes the artist almost a full day to complete.
You won't be disappointed if you become the owner of this work of art. I guarantee it personally or your money back.
