Chun Kwei (Zhong Kui) is a well known ghost catcher hero in Chinese mythology often depicted being very ugly with large protruding eyes, a rough bread and wielding a sword. His fierceness alone could destroy any evil spirits. Carrying or displaying a Zhong Kui amulet helps to ward off evil spirits, gives protection, brings academic success and wealth luck.
According to chinese mythology, Zhong Kui aspired to serve as a court official and took part in the imperial examinations held in the capital city. Despite attaining great academic success and achieving top honours, he was denied the rightful title of “Zhuang Yuan” (top scorer) due to his fierce & scary looks. As a result he committed sucide which was a grave sin condemning him to hell. Yama (the Chinese Hell King) saw great potential in Zhong Kui and made him the King of Ghosts in Hell in charge of capturing & maintaining discipline among the ghosts.
