General Ha and General Heng are two protective deities who guard doorways, entrances and gates.
They are well known across China and beyond. You will see their effigies standing outside many temples and shrines. It is not easy to ignore their rather warped and strained features — the effects of their special heavy breathing techniques.General Heng — Hengjiang — breathes inwards so strongly that light beams shoot from his nostrils. While General Ha — Hajiang — expells poisonous breath through his mouth with deadly force.
The two generals are popular in Taoist and Buddhist circles, and could really revolutionize your home security if you were willing to overlook the occasional bad breath hurricane and laser bolt sneeze.
