The Kantei faith in China developed greatly during the Song-Yuan Dynasty, and the imperial court's posthumous rank became a "King" through the "Hou" and "public".
The form of Guan Yu has been fixed with the development of literary works such as storytellings, ghost novels, Yuan Zaju operas, Yuanqu, and novels.
Although the Yuan dynasty's Guan Yu paintings are slightly different in shape, the Danfeng eyes, Jujube face, and long beard is already established at this time.
However, the statue of the Kantei, which is said to have been handed down from the Chinese Yuan Dynasty, is different from this one.

the oldest in Japan.
