This collection draws inspiration from Journey to the West, a 16th-century Chinese classic attributed to Wu Cheng'en. At once an action-packed adventure story, a humorous satire of Chinese bureaucracy, and a source of spiritual insight, the novel is an extended account of the legendary pilgrimage of the Tang dynasty Buddhist monk Xuanzang, who traveled to Central Asia and India in retrieval of some Buddhist sutras.

In celebration of its long-standing popularity and far-reaching influence, we base the artworks around the five protagonists of the novel, hoping to encapsulate their characterful nature in well-crafted collectibles and let these portable emblems of their spirits inspire you on your own journey.

  • XUANZANG: quest for knowledge; religious devotion; moral purity; unwavering faith; struggle against worldly distractions; cultivation of virtue...
  • SUN WUKONG: unconquerable spirit; unrivaled strength; defiance against rules, social norms, and authority; mischief, wit, and intelligence...
  • ZHU GANGLIE: flaws, weaknesses, and desires; proneness to succumbing to temptation; redemption; light-heartedness; camaraderie...
  • SHA WUJING: humility; acceptance; adaptation; inner strength; composure; kind-heartedness; unwavering loyalty; sense of duty...
  • BAI LONG MA: divine guidance; purity; virtue; adherence to ethical principles; speed; endurance; transcendence of limitations...
