Representing the top three desires of men, these gentlemen (L to R) are the lords of Prosperity, Longevity and Happiness. Fu is usually depicted with a baby or sacred textbooks in his hands (signifying happiness or wisdom). Lu is, understandably, depicted wearing expensive, lavish robes. Shou is often seen as an old, bald (his head is an unusual dome shape) man with the longevity peach and a wooden staff.
I did not take a full frontal shot since there was nothing much in the rear (the statues were all well above me) and the sky would have been burned out. I suppose the angle that I have shown here is better in that sense there is not much clipping, but some points of interest have been left out.
