day 13: Tomb guardian by Wen-M day 13: Tomb guardian by Wen-M
the Chinese pingyin for this guy is Zhen Mu shou (tomb securing beast)

for a short while in ancient chinese history, there was a believe for Ghoul-like creatures that go into tombs and devour the remains of the dead, beasts statues were sculpted to guard the tombs for this period, their look can vary a lot, from something that look like a sphinx, to full armor horned humanoids.

next monster is the mami wata

Ohh, very cool! I love the pose and the swirls. He certainly looks like something I wouldn't want to run into! 8D;

Cool!

I dunno if you're going into Chinese mythology, but I'd look forward to seeing some in the future (such as the Nine Dragon Sons).

you know, if you can suggest some chinese monsters, it would be awesome, but i prefer ones that has english description, so my non-chinese friends can know what they are drawing. xD
