I brought in my prized bronze statue of Sun Wukong to show my Chinese teacher. When she started trying to tell me about him, I stopped her because I know all there is to know on the the story. I've read it three times (twice while I was serving overseas in the military). She then got all excited from our following conversation that she asked me to create a powerpoint slide on Xiyouji and share it with the class next Wednesday. I haven't touched the powerpoint program since I was in 6th grade (1994), but I shouldn't have any problems.

I would like to compile several pictures of all of the major players of Xiyouji, including gods and monsters. Here is what I am looking for:

*Sun Wukong
*Tang Monk
*Zhu Bajie
*Sha Wujing
*White Dragon Horse
*Eastern Dragon King
*August Jade Emperor
*Lord Er Lang
*Prince Nazha
*Lao Zi (and his Ox if possible)
*Lord Yama (and his devils if possible)
*Laughing Immortal
*Queen Mother of the West (and her banquet hall if possible)
*Buddha
*Guan Yin

*White Bone Demon
*Ox demon king
*Black bear demon
*Lady Fan
*Red boy
*Great King Rhinoceros

*Monkey's birth from the stone
*His leap through the water fall
*His travels to find an immortal master
*Master Sabhoti
*His havoc in Heaven
*His disruption of the Queen Mother's banquet
*His war with the 100,000 heavenly soldiers
*Buddha's challenge to him
*Five elements mountain.

etc. etc.

I will keep looking for awesome pictures, but I'm sure I will be able to amass more images quicker with everyone's help. I would prefer links to the pic and a description of its contents. Thank you in advance.

I'm over half way done with my powerpoint presentation. I've decided, for lack of time, to only present Monkey's birth, havoc in heaven, and imprisonment as the central theme of the presentation. This is mainly because the rest of Xiyouji is pretty much the same: the monk is captured by a demon and Monkey has to save him. I will make mention of the reason for the pilgrimage to India and the rest of Xuangzang's disciples, as well as some of the most popular demon's faced.

I finished the project yesterday morning. I sent it to my teacher and she said she was going to give me extra credit. I wasn't really going for extra credit. Heck, she is the one who asked me to do it! But I'll take it anyway. If anyone is interested in seeing it, send me a PM with your email address and I'll send it to you. It has 45 slides in all.

By the way, does anyone know how to "read only" a powerpoint presentation?

I've been meaning to send you this since you posted this thread and I just keep forgetting. It's probably too late, but I'm posting anyway. ;)

I have stated elsewhere that I am not a fan of JttW, but I think this picture of Monkey is awesome and it's on my screen saver. That being said, I have no clue where I found it!! Sorry.

Wow. That is gorgeous. Thank you.

I gave my presentation today in both the 8 and 9am classes and was well received. The teacher is even going to have some questions about it on our next test.

Thanks. I found a site where you can upload powerpoint presentations. Check it out:

http://www.slideshar.../monkey-king-pp

Again, those who have read the book will notice a few things are missing, but I only had a few minutes for the presentation. For example, I left out his soul being dragged to hell where he forces Lord Yama to wipe his name and the rest of his children from the logs of birth and death.

That's a shame man, it's one of my favorite parts. :D

I recently updated the PowerPoint for a class presentation. It now includes the episode in hell. The old slide has been deleted from slidshare, so the above link no longer works. Here is the new link:
