Dragon turtle

Dragon turtle
I wondered about the significance of this bronze of a happy turtle outside the Hall of Supreme Harmony. Looking up the details and significance, Wikipedia tells us that "A dragon turtle (龙龟, Lóngguī) is a legendary Chinese creature that combines two of the four celestial animals of Chinese mythology: the body of a turtle with a dragon is promoted as a positive ornament in Feng Shui, symbolizing courage, determination, fertility, longevity, power, success, and support."
That sounds rather like another way of saying HFF, everyone. :-)

I couldn't resist adding this musical link.

I think the background adds so much to this excellent scene, George.
In Feng Shui the colours of the turtles are most important as is the location. This one being green needs to be found in the east of one's home to reap the benefits of it powers....allegedly

A belated HFF and the best of weekends to you.
