God of Longevity

This is the god of longevity or the saint of long life. This old man with a huge forehead is said to be the one who grants longer lives to those whom are worthy.

His name is romanized as "Shou Xing" and in the older format "Shou Hsing" (his name is literally translated as "longevity star"). In most depictions, including this one, he holds in his hand, a peach of immortality. This famous peach has led many Chinese people to feel the need to eat peaches on their birthdays to ensure long life.

Hanging this tribute to the god of immortality on your wall may ensure you an extended lifetime.
