Ga-ma sen-nin is a taoist sen-nin (named Kö-sen-seï) who lived in the mountains with a huge toad.

The legend says that Kô-sen-seï was selling magical drugs and was able to change into a frog when he was in water.

Another legend says that Kô-sen-seï once found a very sick toad in the mountains that he healed.

Once cured, this toad revealed itself as a demon specialized in occult magical sciences in which he trained Kô-sen-seï.

KÔ-sen-seï is described as very ugly with no lashes and a skin covered with blisters. He is always represented with at least one toad, sometimes a three-legged frog.

Here he is depicted walking, with one large toad on his head, and another toad standing along his right leg. His left hand is resting on the the foot of the toad on his left shoulder, his right hand on the neck of the toad on his leg. His face conveys a cheerful expression. Nice warm patina on the wood.
