Chinese imperial roof decorations or roof charms or roof-figures or "walking beasts") or "crouching beasts" were statuettes placed along the ridge line of official buildings of the Chinese empire. Only official buildings (palaces, government buildings, and some temples) were permitted to use such roof decorations. Chinese roofs are typically of the hip roof type, with small gables, so decorations along the ridge line were highly visible to observers. Variant versions are still widespread in Chinese temples and has spread to the rest of East Asia and parts of Southeast Asia. . At the tail of the procession will be an imperial dragon, representing the authority of the state. At the head of the procession will be a man riding a Phoenix, one legend suggests that this represents a minion of the emperor who grew greedy for power and was hanged from the roof gable for treason. Another version of this figurine is an immortal riding a fenghuang-bird or qilin. Yet another interpretation is that this is a person serving the emperor, being watched by the following beasts. In between will be mythical beasts, usually an odd number of them. The mythical beasts are set to pounce upon the man and devour him should he stray from performing his duties with faithfulness and rectitude. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ تا حالا چین رفتین؟ اگه آره این مجمسه های رو روی سقف دیدین؟ می دونین داستانشون چیه؟ . این مجسمه ها رو روی سقف ساختمون های دولتی امپراطوری چین میشه پیدا کرد. تو اون زمان فقط ساختمون های رسمی اجازه داشتن این مجسمه ها رو روی سقفشون داشته باشن. البته موارد مشابهی توی بعضی معبد ها تو چین و جنوب شرق آسیا میشه پیدا کرد. ته این رشته مجسمه ها اژدهای پادشاهیه که نماد اقتدار حکومته. اولین مجسمه هم مردی سوار بر ققنوس دیده میشه. افسانه های مختلفی راجع به این مرد ققنوس سوار هست. یکی از افسانه ها میگه این مرد یکی از زیر دست های پادشاه بوده که طمع قدرت باعث میشه به پادشاه خیانت کنه و واسه همین واسه همیشه از سقف آویزون میشه. یکی دیگه از افسانه ها میگه این فرد کسیه که خدمتگذار پادشاه بوده و توسط حیونای پشت سرش داره نظارت میشه که دست از پا خطا نکنه و به وظایفش عمل کنه وگرنه در جا خورده میشه 😱 ➖➖➖➖➖➖ #china #beijing #forbidden_city #discoverearth #earthofficial #folkgreen #folkscenery

It’s time to remind that my profile is not just about beautiful pictures😆 Some of you are new here and may not know that I’m a #tourguide in Prague ! Here is some basic information for you. . * You can find the information (including prices) for my tours on www.pragueology.com . All of my tours are private, for your group from 1-6 persons. The price is fixed, so if you’re alone you pay the same as 6 persons would do. I don’t assemble tour groups, as I’m convinced that private tours are the best. . *All my routes are adjustable for your wishes. Feel free to discuss the route of the tour. . Most of all I value time, that’s why I kindly ask you to order the tours in advance. The same in case you have some changes or have to cancel the tour. I don’t work “on call” as in most cases to organize tour for you I have to adjust the babysitter first. . *In case you have the questions you’re free to contact me by email, direct or phone! You can find the contacts in my profile description😉 . Некоторые из вас подписались на мой инстаграм недавно, и пришло время напомнить, что этот аккаунт — не только про красивые картинки. Я #гидвпраге ! Внизу основная информация о моей работе. . * О экскурсиях и ценах можно узнать на www.oknovpragu.ru Там же можно прочитать отзывы о моей работе, и оставить свой отзыв. . *Я не собираю группы. Все мои экскурсии индивидуальные, для компаний от 1-6 человек. Цена фиксированная, т.е. вне зависимости от того, один вы придёте, или вшестером — заплатите ту же сумму. . * Все маршруты моих экскурсий можно приспособить вашим пожеланиям. Я не вожу туристов куда-то только потому, что они «должны» это увидеть. Если вы уже успели что-то посмотреть, или вас вообще интересуют нетуристические места — сообщите мне. Маршрут обсуждаем. . * Я очень ценю время, и жду от своих туристов того же. По этой причине я прошу вас заказывать (и отменять, такое тоже бывает) экскурсии заранее. Во многих случаях для того, чтобы провести экскурсию, я договариваюсь с няней для ребёнка, поэтому не могу собраться куда-то спонтанно. . * Если у вас есть какие-то вопросы — я отвечу на них по электронной почте, через директ или по телефону. Все контакты в шапке профиля.

#Turin or #Torino (however you wanna call it). . . . Ever since I knew that the building on the flip side of the 2 cent Italian coin is in Turin, I have wanted to visit this place. When I finally made it there, my Airbnb had a stunning view of the beautiful #MoleAntoneliana :) . . That kid at the candy store with an open mouth and eyes full of awe? That was definitely me ☺️ . . #VisitTurin #ItalyTrip #moleantonellianatorino #cc5k
