A door god is a Chinese decoration placed on a door. These were used by the Chinese as good luck.

The door gods usually come in pairs, facing each other. It is considered bad luck to place the figures back to back.

Door gods can be seen on each side of an entry to a temple, places of religion, homes, business and other buildings. There is a belief that door gods stop evil spirits from going into the building.

The first door gods may have been made for a Chinese Emperor, more than 1300 years ago. They showed his two best soldiers.

Have you seen this kind of Chinese door god before?
