Inside the Phúc Kiến Community Hall

Inside the Phúc Kiến Community Hall
There are lots of animal symbols in the design and architecture of the Phúc Kiến Community Hall in Hội An. The mosaic fountain inside the assembly hall bears a fish sculpture that is a symbol of achievement. Besides the fish, there are other animals such as dragon, unicorn, phoenix, turtle and so on. All these animals signify different features of the Chinese culture. The dragon is symbol of power and the turtle signifies endurance. On the other hand the unicorn is a symbol of knowledge and the phoenix represents nobility.
