Jingtusi Dragon Pool - 🐲Gorgeous Ceiling of Ancient Architecture

🐲Finally saw the two treasures in Ying County that I missed visiting last time: the remaining relics of the Liao Dynasty stone lion with disheveled hair and the gorgeous literal ceiling of ancient architecture - the Dragon Pool in Jingtusi.

🐲The imaginative ancient people moved the "pool" representing water onto the roof to control the fire and suppress the mischievous fire demons, ensuring the safety of wooden structures. However, this top-notch dragon pool is truly unique. In the seemingly inconspicuous main hall, there is a full wooden carved dragon pool spanning three buildings, with a mix of gold and colorful paintings. It is divided into nine different shaped and styled panels, with colors and intricacies that are truly dazzling and difficult to comprehend. It is a testament to what Li Bai said: "The colorful dragon pools are laid out to resemble a soft canopy, while the skylights spread their wings and carry the rainbows."

🐲For me, although it is exquisitely beautiful, it is too ornate and complex, and I don't like it that much. I can't help but marvel at the craftsmanship and timeless beauty. Buildings have no life, and from the Jin Dynasty to the present, they have weathered thousands of years of wind and frost, yet they still stand here, vividly waiting for future generations to gaze upon.

🐲Over tens of thousands of small wooden pieces are intricately assembled to form the multi-layered and structured "Heavenly Palace", which is even more complex than the most difficult LEGO sets. It is so lifelike that one can imagine miniature celestial beings walking along the corridors. Each dragon pool has a red centerpiece (although only the one in the central Heavenly Palace remains), and two three-dimensional golden dragons are carved in the center of the nine stars, with lifelike features and majestic aura. However, I prefer the adjacent flat dragons, each feather depicted stroke by stroke, so vivid and lifelike. I tried a new panoramic shooting angle of the dragon pool, but failed repeatedly, similar to the technique of cutting out images. At noon, there was no one around, so I sat on a chair in the temple and pretended to be a staff member. It seems that if I want to prevent neck wrinkles, I should come and see more of the arches and dragon pools...
