Taotie ("the glut­ton"), one of "the four mon­sters" in Chinese myth­o­logy, is a beast with a head but no body, pos­sess­ing the power to de­vour ab­so­lutely any­thing. Its sym­bol­ic mean­ing var­ies from merely a mon­ster creature, to a warn­ing for the greedy ones, to even a pro­tect­ive fig­ure.

These creatures are rep­res­en­ted as zoomorph­ic masks with raised eyes and typ­ic­ally - no lower jaw. Earli­est found de­pic­tions of Taotie are on ritu­al bronze ves­sels from the 1st mil­len­ni­um BC. Later on they ap­pear in oth­er styles - rich in col­or and de­tail.

The Taotie mo­tif in this set is slightly mod­i­fied to be­come ho­ri­zont­ally tile­able. It comes in 3 colored ver­sions, each provided with and without back­ground.

Note: Tex­tures are oc­ca­sion­ally ap­plied in the present­a­tion im­ages. Of them, only the "speckles" tex­ture that is ex­pli­citly poin­ted out in the present­a­tion is in­cluded in this set.
