Ngong Ping Village, Hong Kong
Agfa Vista 400 | Olympus IZM 220
Flanking the wide cobbelstone pathway connecting Ngong Ping Village and Po Lin Monastery are statues of twelve divine generals protecting the Big Buddha sitting on the mountain. Each divine general represents an animal of the Chinese zodiac and hours of the day. Above are the General Anila (top, armed with an arrow) representing the Sheep and the hours of 1:00pm - 3:00pm, and General Pajra (bottom, armed with a bow and arrow) representing the Dragon and the hours of 7:00am - 9:00am.
