Taoist protection amulet bai Wu Cheng silver 925 and copper.

In Chinese mythology, the Hei Bai Wu Chang are gods of death, fortune, protection and impermanence. They are the subordinates of King Yànwong
(燕), the ruler of the Underworld, and are tasked with escorting the souls there. The white guard is named Xie Bi An, and the black guard is called Fan Wu Jiu.

常 Is translated into impermanence in French. Bai Wu Chang ()-常 white impermanence and Hei Wu Chang (黑常), the black impermanence.

Whether in traditional paintings, effigies or modern art, the two wu chang are always presented shoulder to shoulder, lean and macabre, in exactly the same dresses but inverted in color of each other. Hei dressed in black and Bai in white. Sometimes the details of their dresses complemented each other perfectly, white reflections on Hei's dresses and black ones on Bai's. They also wear mitres, which are inscribed on the front of the roof. Bai Wu Chang is depicted with a long and extraordinary tongue coming out of his mouth.

According to popular legend, the Hei Bai Wu Chang were once two very close friends, Xie Bi An and Fan Wu She. Xie was tall, pale and thin and Fan was short, dark and stocky. One day, friends were walking by the river, when it started raining, Fan invited Xie to stay under the bridge and stay safe from the rain while he went home to get an umbrella. On the way back to Xie, the rain became heavier and heavier, the lightning lit up and the thunder rumbled, turning the rain into a huge storm. But Fan continued, determined to keep his word. The river overflowed furiously, sweeping fan's little silhouette and drowning him in his waves. After the storm, Xie saw his friend's corpse and was heartbroken, wishing that he would die instead. He could no longer bear his grief and hung himself on a beam of the bridge.

When the souls of Fan and Xie traveled to the underworld, the lord of this kingdom, Yànwong was greatly moved to listen to their history. He renamed them Fan Hei Wu Chang, and Xie Bai Wu Chang and From there, they were assigned to support Qing Xi Cheng Huang, the god of the city, to deal with the peace and harmony of the mortal world, their task being to catch the wandering souls in order to bring them to justice in the underworld.

Xie Bi An and Fan Wu Jiu are not Beings of the Lower World or Guards of Hell. They are considered to be the deity of the mortal world, capable of walking among us day and night (並非 陰將間所謠傳陰間所謠傳 二將屬間祇間夜穿梭間).
