Here’s a detail from a roof of a building in the Forbidden City in Beijing that I took during our trip to China in 2007. According to Wiki, these figures were only allowed on official buildings. The Wiki report continues: “At the tail of the procession will be an imperial dragon, representing the authority of the state.” Click here for the Wiki page about Imperial roof decoration.
