Shen Shu

Chinese - A door-god. Brother of Yü Lu. He and his brother lived on Mount Tu Shuo under a magical peach tree, the branches of which formed the Door of the Spirits through which every soul passed after death. They bound those with wicked spirits and fed them to tigers. Their image is put in doorways of houses to protect against evil spirits. Occasionally called Shen Shu, Yü Lu or Yü Lu.
