Geocache Description:


wind lion god

[Wind Lion God in Kinmen]
To resist the strong monsoon wind to ruin crops and avert the disease as well as the evilness, people in Kinmen invoked Wind Lion God (FengShiYe, also called Stone Lion God) to guard their village and protect them from the evil spirits because they believed the stone lion has the magical power to protect them and bring them good fortune.

In Kinmen, Wind Lion Gods are not only the guardians of villages and people but also art of culture. There are about 100 Wind Lion Gods shielding villages and houses on Kinmen island. Each Wind Lion God has unique extreme facial expressions. The variations of their expressions can range from ferocious type to joyful one. The size of Wind Lion Gods are also diverse, they can be large to 4m in height or short to 30cm.

Besides, according to their different functions, some Wind Lion Gods stand at the outer of a village, but some stand at the corner of an alley in the village, or on the wall of an old house. The alleys in the village are complex. Sometimes you can only find them with your fortune, even someone tell you where them are.
