The wishful Niangniang faith is originated in Ningbo Xiangshan Yushan Islands folk beliefs. Oral narrative passed on from generation to generation, wishful Goddess in a foreign Yu Jianv image appear, its parent of Touhai martyrdom extraordinary Hyo held by local fishermen worship as a maritime peace filial God, as the most important on the island The Sea God bless the safety of fishing. In the Legend of the official version, the Islanders were also recovered from the wishful the empress Touhai at floating wood and carved into wishful empress of body sculpting. Variant of this floating corpses s grandmother, gods and statues is clearly associated with the unique funeral rituals in the Zhejiang coastal islands, wood waves the soul ritual of Scarecrow general played adsorption drifted away from the body, the soul sunk in the sea the role. Such the planks floating objects not only been officially accepted by many scholars acquisition, and the collective memory of the fishermen of the island male, female worshipers of folk narrative, wood is generally lotus feet replaced. The resulting boards with red shoes that the coexistence of points gender should be a reflection of the gender and social background of the faithful.
