The God of Thunder, Lei Gong is venerated as a guardian deity in the Taoist pavilion. He is a demon queller and a punisher of mortals guilty of secret crimes. As shown here in this elaborately carved-through statue, Lei Gong is depicted as a fierce winged warrior, with bulging eyes and eagle beak, hovering above two men in a striking motion; the statue is portraying a timeless story of crime and punishment. The figures are powerful and crisp, lively and fluid in movements, carved in rounded curves, eloquent angle varies in depth. Aside from the minor restoration to the oar and a filled crack line, it is overall remaining in very good condition.
