Rust Dragon

Rust dragon
A rusting dragon curled around the center of a door in Yonghe.

Wander along the many alleyways of Yǒnghé 永和 and you’re guaranteed to encounter one of these mass-produced metal doors affixed with a dragon like the one pictured above. This particular example happened to catch my eye—it is unusually weathered with a big streak of rust below, not unsurprising given the incessant rain and humid climate.
