WEI-CHENG
Also known as WEI-CH'ENG, WE-JENG

Door God, one of the [MEN-SHEN].

Like his military comrades, he stands guard in the doorway, defending it against evil spirits and burglars. Unlike them he works round the back of the property and is not nearly so visible.

As most intruders automatically make for the back entrance, you'd think he'd be more popular, but the other two tend to steal the limelight.

We are often asked about merchandise. Can we supply the latest Wei-cheng graphic novel, book or comic? Not to mention role-playing games (RPG), video games, Wei-cheng 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 Wei-cheng statues, sculptures or carved figurines of Wei-cheng. We regret we cannot assist with identifying such items.
