CHINESE MYTHOLOGY

The Gods and Spirits of the Middle Kingdom...

SONG-DI-WANG

Chinese Underworld God

Also known as YU-SONG-DI, SUNG-TI-WANG

Wielder of the Black Rope

Ruler of the Third Court of FENG-DU, the Chinese Hell.

Here you’ll find the punishment of the Black Rope, where escaped prisoners, drug addicts, blasphemers and murderers are hung upside-down. That might not sound too bad, until you discover that crushed knees, skinning and eyeball torture are part of the bargain.

SONG-DI-WANG also punishes tomb raiders, who are slowly fried over a copper griddle. Lara Croft had better watch out.
