… you’ll find something quite fascinating, if you happen to be on Section 3 of the Wilson Trail (at distance post 026, grid reference KK163701, just above Ma Yau Tong), as I was yesterday.
There is a large collection of brightly coloured sculptures featuring people (apparently of various races) and animals, many of them labelled in English, as well as a shrine with some sort of deity in it. The sculptures are getting a little dilapidated, but the shrine itself is still clearly maintained on a regular basis. Here are some examples:
I can find lots of other similar pictures online, but no-one seems to be able to offer an explanation of what all this is about. Do any of my readers have any idea? In particular, what do the Chinese characters in that last picture say?
And in addition to this surprise in the woods, the views out on the hills yesterday were well worth putting up with the 34 degree heat.
