For this study I looked at the Monkey King Mythology. For most of the Monkey King myth, their topics are about how the monks against temptations, including when they are facing the temptation of lust, wealth, food and high social position, what and how they respond. I think some of them are wonderful reflection to our realistic world.
This painting depicts three lady snakes temp the monk, who is self control and stayed faithful to his way of life. But the pig cannot against the watermelon which is also a trick and temptation from the snakes. The monk’s horse is facing temptation of the smelling of the follower also. The monkey is very alert in the story, he can see thought the snakes’ tricks by his fire eyes.
