HANG

Along with [HA], he's a spirit general who protects [ID:BUDDHA].

HANG can send laser beams from his nostrils, so was conscripted by Heaven to serve as a minder. Why BUDDHA should need such protection in Heaven makes one wonder.

But the images of HA and HANG are also used to deter vandals from desecrating shrines.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Hang graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Hang movies on DVD, BluRay and so on. To purchase such goodies we suggest you search for a dedicated mythology-based online store - or try Amazon, Ebay or other reputable websites. We offer a wide range of our own merchandise in our online GodShop, but we don't currently sell third party items. Yet!

Visitors often email us asking about Hang statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Hang. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
