Many thanks for your compliment Suzi! It's a fine detail, with true gold? ;-) Early morning greetings, Udo

Wonderful view of the Golden dragon, so fine in details (if enlarged can see all very good),

is it carved out of wood and than painted gold ? Must have been a long job if carved by hand, is there a special story about this too ? seeing all the other animals a deer and a crane and so many more,

Golden smiles send K@rin and a Gold*

Hello dear Karin!

great thanks for your visit and splendid comment + YS in GOLD!:) I'm very happy you like this kind of photo which is showing the most importand mytical symbol of China!

Here do you can read further informations about dragons, etc.!

This shot also remind me very special about all my former travellings on feet...many times far and without any bus or whole day! On the map (right side) you see the tomb of the former king of Brunei which visited China and the first Ming-Emperor in Nanjing! Unexpected manner he died during his visit........

Best wishes and a happy sunday, Udo
