南天福德正神 (Nantian Fude God) is a regional Earth God served in 東林福德廟 (Donglin Fude Temple), a venerable temple located in Linyuan, southern Taiwan. Assisted by two celestial officials, the aristocracy-dressed Fude God has been assigned by Heaven's authority to guard His area of jurisdiction since the mid-18th century. He became notable after guiding the locals to break the Scissors Curse that was set in Linyuan by a vengeful Taoism master. 

This design work is dedicated to the Temple as a return of the grant they kindly offered in 2018 for the production of《剪刀穴》(The Pivot Point ), which is a CG animation based on the folklore of the Scissors Curse.
