Kylins (or Qilins)

Kylins as they were identified at the exhibit. Qilins seems to be the contemporary English spelling. Learn more about them.

The LanternAsia exhibit is currently at the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. The exhibit consists of images from Chinese culture and mythology constructed of painted silk stretched over wire and metal frames. At night, the images are alight from bulbs placed inside them (we are waiting for warmer weather before seeing them at night).

This is the first of what will likely be three posts of pictures from our stroll through the gardens.

We went to the gardens on Sunday and strolled around Mirror Lake, the only remaining portion of the original gardens, as we learned from one of the signs.
