Beauty and the beast

450"Handsome and the beast" can be an alternative title :p
Another photo at the Peak (remember? I took 200 photos there :p) at an old pavilion decorated with sculptures of this legendary beast which is either Qilin or Pixiu. Whichever it is, it does something good with the FengShui and brings luck to visitors. To me, Qilin and Pixiu don't have a consistent appearance so I can never tell which is which. Maybe some of my learned visitors can tell us?
Here are the links to the wiki pages if you are interested to find out: Qilin, Pixiu.

Je trouve la sculpture tres belle. J'avoue avoir un faible pour les arts asiatiques

Hi Lisi! Dutchie, too funny! ;-) And this little guy looks so forlorn...awwwwwwww...maybe he just needs his Mama! Looks a little like Yoda! LOL!

LOL, yes Dutchie, you are the winner this time...actually that guy probably thought I was taking his photo and stared at me for a long time...narcissistic?

And Kris and Ame, true why bother, it is a lion or even cooler...YODA!

You made me laugh and thank you!
