Menshen or threshold guardian are divine guardians of doors and gates in Chinese folk religions, used to protect against evil influences or to encourage the entrance of positive ones.
February 12 is the traditional Chinese New Year, I hope you have a peaceful and prosperous new year.

除厄免灾:
Removal of bad luck and avoidance of disasters
家宅平安:
Keep peace for your home
 
On my chest there's a Chinese character 福(means happiness、satisfied、fulfilled),and it‘s on inverted position.
In Chinese it‘s a homonym,福到了=happiness have arrived
 
I know stormtroopers shouldn't use lightsabers,but it's just for fan~

  • Daetrin changed the title to Menshen (门神)

That's totally cool.  How are you guys planning on celebrating this year - are you still going to travel home?  I hope everyone remains safe over there.

 

I like what you did for figures, it's pretty creative and I'd do the same thing though I don't think my wife would appreciate me putting them on the dining room table. :)

Thanks Daetrin~We have some more cases, and to avoid retransmission, maybe people won't go home for Chinese New Year this time.
