Pottery Unicorn

Ping Shan, Hong Kong

Unicorn is a creature in Chinese myth, is sometimes called "the Chinese unicorn", but it is not directly related to the classical Western unicorn, having the body of a deer, the head of a lion, green scales and a long forth-curved horn.

I don't think I made it out here when I was in Hong Kong. Excellent work on this temple and a nice capture.

Such a beautiful image, CM. Your history is so rich and goes back so far. Our Western countries are mere babies in comparison.
