  Nezha fighting with Ao Bing

 

Thailand

A temple mural of Nezha San Taizi fighting with the Sea Dragon Ao Bing, the third son of Ao Guang, the Dragon King of the East Sea.

 

He is depicted subduing Ao Bing and pulling one of his elongated whiskers, while typically holding his magical Golden Hoop in the left hand, and here being carried by two Wheels of Fire, i.e. his regular means of transportation.
