Gluttonous (t ? O Ti è), alias gluttonous, roe deer owl (P á o XI) ? o) , is a ferocious and greedy beast in ancient Chinese myths and legends, and one of the four fierce beasts. The following is a detailed introduction to the Chinese story network. Let’s look down.

[name]: Taotie

[nickname]: roe deer Owl

[category]: Spirit

[Characteristics]: first, it has a human face, eyes under the armpits, and tiger teeth and hands; Another is that there is a head without a body; It is also said that its shape is like a wolf, and the head shape is carved on the Zhong Ding Yi ware as decoration;

[ability]: one of the dragon’s sons, one of the four evils, good diet, and regarded by the world as a voracious beast

Taotie, one of the “nine sons of the dragon” in Yang Shen’s version of the Ming Dynasty, is an evil animal that symbolizes greed and good food. It is called “four evils” together with “chaos, poverty and wonder, and Tao Wu”. There are three kinds of statements about its image: the “Taotie” in the book of mountains and seas “is like a sheep’s face, its eyes are under the armpits, its teeth are like human claws, and its sound is like a baby”; However, the “gluttonous” in Lu Buwei’s spring and Autumn Annals of the Lu family in the Warring States period is “having a head but no body, and eating people without swallowing harm to their bodies”; When “Taotie” was included in the “nine sons of the dragon” by Yang Shen, there was a folk saying that it was “shaped like a wolf”.

There is no “Taotie” in the collection of huailutang by Li Dongyang in the Ming Dynasty. However, in the collection of Jianhu by Chu Ren in the Qing Dynasty, it is mentioned that the reason why “Taotie” is listed as a dragon is because the emperor Xiaozong of the Ming Dynasty inquired about the specific name of Li Dongyang, a scholar of the cabinet of literature, about the “nine sons of the dragon”. After discussion with his colleagues, Li Dongyang hastily listed the “nine sons of the dragon”. This list of “nine sons of the dragon” is Li Dongyang’s version of “nine sons of the dragon”. After many years, the rising star [Ming] Yang Shen and Li Dongyang discussed the topic of “long Jiuzi” again. Under the guidance of Li Dongyang, Yang Shen revised and adjusted Li Dongyang’s version of “long Jiuzi” and finally proposed a new “long Jiuzi”, that is, Yang Shen’s version of “long Jiuzi”.

Li Dongyang’s version of the nine sons of the Dragon: Prisoner ox, Jain, mocking wind, Pu Lang, lion dragon, Ba Shang, Pang, Pang, Chi kiss

Yang Shen’s version of the nine sons of the New Dragon: Pang (BA Shang), Pang kiss (chi kiss), Pu Lao, Pang, Taotie, Chong Ba, Chong Xia (centipede Viper), Jain, Jin Long (lion dragon), Jiaotu

Yang Shen deleted “prisoners with good sex”, “mockery of dangerous sex” and “writing with good sex”, and added “insect eight with good sex”, “insect summer with good sex”, “Pepper chart with good sex” and “gluttonous food with good sex”.

Because of “Taotie” and “good food”, it stands on the dinggai. However, the “Taotie” mentioned by Lu Rong in “miscellaneous records of Shuyuan · different names of ancient artifacts” is: “the nature is good, so the bridge is built”. It is obvious that “Taotie” and “Chong Ba” and “Chong Xia” are combined as one animal. And Xie Zhaoyi in the Ming Dynasty also agreed that “Taotie” was a dragon and good water. It is also for this reason that there is a difference in the positioning of “Taotie” between “standing on the bridge head” and “standing on the tripod cover”, which also leads to the fact that Taotie is the only dragon with “one animal and two uses” among the dragons.
