Hi!

I have noticed pictures of Furukoruju where kettles and other objects are placed on his head. Is there a reference to something else?
I show examples:
Fukurokuju, Benten, and Hotei at a Party with Courtesans at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 11.14459, 11.14460, 11.14564
The Seven Gods of Good Fortune Playing Party Games at Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, 11.21171-2
Courtesan entertaining Daikoku and Fukurokuju, no. 10 from a series of 12 prints at Art Institute of Chicago,1925.1854
