The Goats of Qingyang Palace

Local legend says that Qingyang Palace got the nickname Green Ram Temple from the pair of bronze goat statues flanking the altar of Sanqing Hall. One of the goats is recognizable for what it is, but the other boasts the ears of a mouse, nose of an ox, tiger claws, dragon horns, and a snake’s tail, among other features. Both statues are believed to have been taken from Beijing during the Qing Dynasty.
