Reckless Ghost

《送子天王圖》 吳道子

According to the ancient texts: ‘Those with green pupils can see demons; those with white pupils can see ghosts.’

Next to the stone archway of Sanyuan Fang(三元坊) in Hangzhou lived an old lady surnamed Shen. She could often see ghosts. She once said, ‘Ten years ago, I saw a disheveled ghost hiding in the stone embroidery on top of the archway. It held paper money, using it as a dart. The paper dart was over ten feet long, densely packed, resembling a string of beads.
