A word from the store
The design of the vermilion Zhong Kui (Sho-ki) represents the wish of the people of the time to be rid of smallpox, which was prevalent during the Edo period.
The red color represents smallpox. A cure for this disease, which was prevalent during the Edo period, had not yet been established.
It is thought that people at that time displayed Zhong Kui (Sho-ki) painted in vermilion in their alcoves, hoping that the power of Zhong Kui (Sho-ki) would exterminate the disease and that their children would grow up healthy.
Even today, people around the world are suffering from infectious diseases.
Although times may have changed, our wish that this situation will soon improve is the same.
Zhong Kui is a Taoist deity, mainly from Chinese folklore. In Japan, people dedicate pictures and dolls to him during Tango-no Sekku (Dragon Boat Festival) because he is believed to be effective in warding off pox and achieving academic success. The image of Shoki is also believed to be effective in warding off evil, and is often displayed as a banner, a folding screen, or a hanging scroll, or placed on a roof. Note that Zhong Kui (Sho-ki), painted in vermilion, comes from the fact that the red color was said to be effective in preventing smallpox during the Edo period. He is always depicted with a long beard, dressed in the costume of a Chinese official, holding a sword and staring at something with his big eyes.
