For this photo Life Imitates Art challenge here’s my photo with a turtle statue.
This photo was taken at Jurong Chinese Garden, Singapore.
According to the Chinese mythology tells that phoenix, qilin or unicorn, dragon and turtles are one of the most sacred animals.
Being one of the animals that has endured longest on earth, turtle is considered as a symbol of wisdom, endurance, wealth and long life.
Speaking of wisdom here’s Confucius statue and me doing a much better pose, just kidding, though.
A question to everyone just out of my curiosity. A Chinese friend of mine saw these photo with me and the turtle statues and told me it’s a bad luck to take pictures together with a turtle. Is it true?
