Red Boy No Cha is an inspiring deity in Chinese mythology adapted both in Buddhism and Taoism. As described in the book “Creation of The Gods”. Red Boy was an incarnation of the Divinity Pearl born a bouncing lump of flesh, his father The Pagoda Bearer thought that it was a demon and cut it open, and from which the child emerged with a magic golden bracelet on his wrist. As told here in this statue, No Cha was a toddler bathing by the seashore and causing a tsunami. When the son of the Dragon King rose from the sea to investigate, No Cha had him captured and removed the spine of the Dragon Prince. For which Red Boy was denounced by his father, and he sliced all the flesh from his body to repented the crime. Later the Bodhisattva of Compassion Kuan Yin appeared to revived him by reconstituting his body with lotus leaves, and transformed the Red Boy into a fierce protector of the faith.
