F is for Feng Po Po

Many of the stories you still see today are inspired directly and indirectly from various myths. For the 2015 A-Z Challenge, I'm going to share mythology from all over the world - myths that are familiar and obscure.

There's two reasons why I chose Feng Po Po for the Letter F today:

1) The art depicting Feng Po Po is utterly gorgeous
2) Her name is just cool to say

Feng Po Po is the Chinese goddess of the wind. She's often seen riding a tiger in the air, carrying a bag of winds in her hand. Feng Po Po also uses flying dragons to do her bidding.

If you're feeling weary, tired, or stuck in a negative pattern, you can pray to Feng Po Po, and she will come to help by clearing out the negative energies. She brings "new air" to your life.

However, if you piss her off, she will bring a hurricane to your life. She transforms into her darker persona, Feng Poo Poo. Okay, I made up that part. Not true. The last thing I need in my life is to anger the "Wind Goddess."

I wonder if that Stone Temple Pilots album features a version of her on the cover then?

Chrys Fey said...

Oh, wow! That is gorgeous! I love Asian art and I wish I had a painting of her.

L. Diane Wolfe said...

Her name is cool to say - LOL!

Shawn Griffith said...

Great post! Love the artwork and the name. We must not anger the gods and especially the goddesses :-)

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

It is beautiful artwork. I could have used her help to do away with the negative more than a few times.

Pat Dilloway said...

Riding a tiger sounds awesome, albeit dangerous.

Anne Marie Schlueter said...

I agree, what a fun name! And gorgeous painting.

I wouldn't might a few dragons to do my bidding. :)

*mind. I can't spell today. :)

Sarah Foster said...

That's a very cool myth. I could probably use some "new air" right now :)

I agree that sometimes you can be enchanted by the sound of a name. Her's is so alliterative.

Tyrean Martinson said...

Beautiful art, and I love the idea that she can control the winds via dragons!

Matthew MacNish said...

Ah yes, she brings the winds of change. Now I know who to blame.

I love reading about Chinese deities. The whole Celestial Bureaucracy thing is fascinating. And I too think the art work is gorgeous for her! :)

That is a gorgeous picture of her! I think it would be kind of fun myself to have a flying dragon at my service.

Hahahah... Feng Poo Poo. You do know that's how vicious rumors get started which ultimately morph into Myth, right???? Ha!

Li said...

I'm tempted to look around online and see if I can buy a copy of that print. And I could definitely use some cleansing wind to clear out winter's cobwebs. Cool post!

I love this post, I find Feng Po Po to be very cool.

Does the Wind Goddess turn into Feng Poo Poo when she follows through? Sorry... you went there. :P She does sound like a great goddess if she is on your side.

Jo said...

I like the sound of this Wind Goddess. I was born under the sign of the Tiger and love dragons. I am, in fact, grandmother to a red fire dragon

Sharon Marie Himsl said...

Yes, very interesting. So I said Feng Po Po out loud and now it's like one of those songs you can't get out of your head :) "Think kind thoughts, think kind thoughts....and gentle sea breezes."

Lynda R Young said...

I agree. The art is goregous.

DMS said...

I don't want to anger the wind goddess either- but the artwork is fabulous and she has a great name! :)
