  Qi Ye

 

Vietnam

Qi Ye is the name of a popular Taoist deity, who was a general and the best friend of Ba Ye. He is always portrayed with his tongue sticking out (fig.), because he hanged himself in mourning for Ba Ye, after the latter had drowned himself. In China, he is associated with the Demon King Gui Wang (fig.).
