Jincheng City, Taiwan

A Wing Lion God placed at the entrance of a hot pot restaurant along Jincheng's Old Street. Found almost exclusively on Kinmen, its Wind Lion God statues, scattered around the island supposedly to help protect inhabitants from Chinaâs feared sandstorms. The statues are said to fend off the worst of the wind, always remaining stoically facing the sea.
