It is worth noticing that Zhong Kui is positioned neither by the painter, nor by the mythology as the creature attacking the evil spirits — on the contrary, the Devil Queller remains calm until demons start playing their tricks.
Legend has it Zhong Kui commands more than 80,000 ghosts and demons himself.
The larger ghost caught him, ripped at his eyes and ate him.
