BA-JA

Chinese God

Scruffy Mongolian God of Scarecrows

This dear old Mongolian general with a splendid record was rewarded in extreme old age with the job of Celestial Scarecrow. Or Scarelocust in this case.

His new uniform included an eagle’s beak, talons and a blue skin, but he was allowed to keep his general’s cloak.

BA-JA’s image was put on poles and was not always very effective as he was inclined to doze off. But as a Worzel Gummidge sort of God he is regarded with great affection.
