A button form toggle with a powerful image of a red lacquered Tao Tieh. Legend has it that the dragon king had nine sons all of whom were sinful monsters, Tao Tieh was the fifth and a gluttonous monster, he had a gigantic head and an infinite mouth with no body. In later years civilization taught Tao Tieh manners and restraint although he kept his appetite he limited himself to consuming those intent upon doing evil. Today Chinese gourmands often refer to themselves as Tao Tieh. By wearing a Tao Tieh a wearer would announce his gusto for the good things in life and display his imperviousness to evil. Elm wood. 19th c.
