In Chinese mythology, Yang Jian, also known as Erlang Shen, is most famous for the third eye on his forehead, which could see through every object to access truth in the world. He is described to be often seen accompanied by a fierce deity dog, named Xiao Tian Quan (the dog barking against the heaven).
