Bat Decoration


  • Bat-shaped relief can be found on top of stone couplets in the corridors, which are part of the decoration elements of the building.
  • The art demonstrates the adoption of Western architectural techniques combined with Chinese cultural interpretation.

  • In Chinese tradition, “hanging bat” is a homophone in Chinese for “good fortune”, thus bat is considered an animal of blessing in Chinese society.
