Every gate in china has two golden dragons with what I think is the "globe" in the middle. What does this mean? please be as open as possible -no secrets for easy understanding. I've been trying to find out for 7 yreas I've lived in China.
Dear Nwa, There is an old story goes that the dragon often made damages to the crops and cattles at night. So the residents called a man named Zhang Daoling to put a "globe" in the dragon's mouth to make it stop making the damages. Candice Song replied on 2011-12-05
