Need help identifying figures in Chinese temple [ASAP]
 
Yep, so last week, I paid a visit to Malaysia for a competition. Along the week, we visited a chinese temple, and took some pictures of statues and murals. And then my teacher wants me to write a report on it, and to be sent next week. I have absolutely no idea which is which when I search on the net, so next best thing is here.



























All I need are identification, a name for each of them :py06:

The problem with this is that there can be many different presentations and interpretations to the legions of gods in Chinese folklore... It would have been a lot better if the names are presented...

I am an atheist, so my knowledge in this field is limited.

Shou (寿). Recognise him by the peach-like "tumor" on his head.

You are right about this... Except the order should be Lu Fu Shou (禄福寿), I think, for this case (left to right)

Center god should be this god - Li Jing (李靖)
Left could be Nezha (哪吒), but don't bet too much on it.

Generic goddesses, I think




Last 4 pics are basically images of gods with auspicious writings... So from my deduction...
