Zhong Kui - Ghost Warrior

Zhong Kui - Warrior of the Dream World Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the warrior artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is one of the more famous of all Chinese Deities.

Some give him titles like "Vanquisher of Demons", "King of the Ghosts of Hell" or simply "Ghost Warrior". Images of Zhong Kui were traditionally painted on the courtyard gates of homes. Though this practice has faded in history with the advent of the urban apartment. Still, you will see paintings of this mythical character in people's homes as a guardian spirit.

During the reign of Emperor Xuanzong, (the sixth emperor of the Tang Dynasty 712 to 756 AD), the Emperor fell ill. He had a dream in which he saw an evil ghost. The ghost was stealing from the emperor (symbolically stealing his soul). A powerful ghost suddenly appeared and smited the evil ghost, then introduced himself as Zhong Kui. He said that he had sworn to rid the empire of evil.

From this episode in Chinese mythology / history, Zhong Kui became a famous figure of protection from evil.
