The Vietnamese dragon is the symbol of yang representing the universe life existence and growth, often used on stairways, pillars, door frames, and so on. This dragon's head and foreparts are decorated with glazed ceramic chips in a mosaic technique, probably dating from the late 1960s after the Buddha statue was erected. Two visitors visible at the top of the stairway.
Location: Long Son Pagoda, Nha Trang, Vietnam
