Both the dragon and the tortuous have deep mythological significance in both ancient, and modern Chinese society. While the dragon is a symbol of power, strength and success, the turtle teaches us patience and wisdom. The combination of both creates balance, as both are important to create harmony. Known as a Bixi, these are commonly rubbed for good luck!
On top of the mythological creature is a pagoda. The pagoda is symbolic of the rise of Buddhism and spirituality in China, and represent sacred Mountains.
