Deities Worshipped

Ox King and Horse King

In ancient China, rural people worshipped the Ox King and Horse King. They acknowledged the role oxen and horses had played in the development of agriculture and believed they shouldn't be forgotten. Here, the Ox King looks like a venerable scholar , corresponding to the ox's slow movement and endurance, whereas the Horse King appears as a masked military officer with four arms , symbolizing the horse's fiery disposition and quick movements. The suckling calf and newborn colt in the foreground signify the farmers' desire that the gods bless them with bumper harvests and healthy domestic animals.
