The legends of Door Gods
Door Gods originated in the eastern Han Dynasty (25-220), where they were engraved on peachwood and hung at doors of homes. Then in Song Dynasty (960-1279), they were drawn on red paper and later machine printed.

According to “Classic of Mountains and Sea”, evil spirits passed between the spirit world and earth on Dusu Mountain. Fearing for the safety of humans, the Jade Emperor assigned Shen Tu and Yu Lei to guard the gate. If the spirits create troubles, they will be captured by them and fed to tigers at the foot of Dusu Mountain. Later, humans engraved their images onto peachwood and hung them on doors for protection.

Another legend said Emperor Tai Zong of Tang Dynasty (618-907) was disturbed by ghosts while he was asleep. Two generals who could succumb to nocturnal duties were then summoned to guard the door of the emperor’s bedroom. They were Qin Qiong and Yu Chi Gong who were not afraid of ghosts Their presence solved the emperor’s sleeping problems. The portrait of the officials were then drawn and displayed at door of the emperor’s bedroom and palace gates. No further commotion was heard from the spirits since then. These two brave generals were venerated as door gods and soon many homes display their images.

For those who have stayed in the Peninsula Hotel in Kowloon, Hong Kong, you will notice there are immaculate portraits of door gods guarding thie hotel. Hanging outside the hotel’s front entrance between two sheets of plate glass are two enormous gilded “Door Gods” who perform the same task and protect all those who sleep in the house from footloose evil spirits. British artist David Gillespie created the original Door Gods in 1965 and the new versions were later installed during the hotel’s renovation in 1994. Affectionately known as “Huffer and Puffer”, the modern door gods are made from bronze-woven mesh with an applique of copper and bronze foil, which was then gilded with gold leaf and painted. It took six weeks to make the new Door Gods, and there are, in fact, four of them – two on each side of the glass.

The door gods usually come in pairs, facing each other.
