The old man is the God of Longevity. He is accompanied by two boys, one holding a big peach in his hand, and the other carrying another peach on his back while riding on a deer. They stand on a rockery base carved in openwork. The rockery and the deer are both made of camphor wood lacquered in black. The base is singed with the maker's name.
