Pair of Corner Carvings #3

These carvings - despite having different subjects - obviously were done by the same hand. The crab, fish, and bird together suggest immortal abundance through high governmental position. The mythical animal is the chilin shown with both the lotus and the gourd holding the elixir of immortality. These symbols suggest an abundance of children with very long lives.
