Are you interested in more of the ZHE GAO New year figures? Check out my other posts about the rest of the set!
Out of the three deities, this is my favorite one. From what I read on China Simplified, my guess is that this is the “the Door God” 门神 (MénShén). He’s probably one of the least commonly heard of deities internationally. According to China Simplified, he’s the deity that dispels evil and protects the fortunes of families and businesses.
I loved how the colors popped for this figure, especially the white beard and yellow “robe”. It’s also one of my favorites because the staff he’s holding is far more intricate than any of the other items held by the other deities.
I bought this as part of a set of 4 for $15.30USD.
I bought this on AliExpress during the new year sale.
I haven’t checked if the pieces are compatible with Lego but as soon as I do, I will update the page.
