Kuan Yin and Guan Yu
|These two figurines are so out-of-place in this backstreet corner, more so being beside some street cleaning tools. I took this photo and later found out they have been there for a while. They are Kuan Yin (the white one), a buddhist goddess of mercy; and Guan Yu, a historic warrior turned folklore god representing righteousness and loyalty. A really interesting thing about Guan Yu is that he is worshipped by both triads gangsters and the police.|
We don't find them side by side usually and of course not in such "unholy" location. Really weird!
