It is an extraordinary piece. Please add it to your collection! Guan Yu is famous in Japan for his loyalty to his master and his strong will. Though classical scholars now debate of Guan Yu's true personality, throughout Asia he is revered as a deity for protection against demons, and as an example to society on the values of loyalty. Also hanging an image of Guan Yu is thought to bring fortune and wealth! He is found in the Romance of the Three Kingdom legend with Liu Bei and other noted characters. He is known in Chinese Buddhism as Chie Lan Pu sa or the Protector of the Dharma Hall. (Example can be found in Chinese temples both Buddhist and Daoist and a similar example in Manpukuji Temple in Kyoto.)
