This is an odd question. I took this photo at the Bao-an Daoist temple right across the street from the Confucius Temple. This mural was on the side of the main, interior, front building.
What I am trying to find out, what event is this mural showing? It appears to be some scholar-warrior crawling between the legs of two blue collar working guys. Is it from some Chinese novel/legend/myth/historical event? The mural right next to it looks like a scene out of Romance of the Three Kingdoms and then around the corner is a large mural of Zhong Kui (the demon catcher).
Any ideas? It is not just idle temple curiosity, I am trying to fit the photo into an article I am doing.
Take care and thanks for whatever help folks can be.
