282px-Jurojin with deer

Jurojin , from Mythological Japan : the symbolisms of mythology in relation to Japanese art, with illustrations drawn in Japan, by native artists (1902).

Jurojin, or Gamma, is the god, not goddess, of longlevity as said in the description. He is often depicted as an old man with a very long beard, and a tall head.  He walks around with his fan and staff, which has a scroll attatched to it that tells the lifespan of each living thing.  His deer, which is the symbol of long life, accompanies him as his messenger (which is why she has deer horns). Jurojin is often identified with Fukurokuju who are said to inhabit the same body.
