The Guan Xiongmin are a strange race of people from ancient Chinese belief. They look like any other person but they have many holes in their chest. They are sometimes known as the ‘Perforated People’. They use their holes to put poles through themselves to carry people much like a palanquin. The servant Guan Xiongmin carry their master on palanquins by putting the poles that hold up the chair through their chests. They Guan Xiongmin feature in the Zhunshu Junian (Bamboo Annals 299 BCE).
