The Green Ram - Sichuan Province, China
Oct 14 2001

The Green Ram is the reason pilgrims visit Quingwang temple. Made up of all the parts of the Zodiac animals (beard of a goat, neck of a horse, back of a dog and so on) it is thought that if you rub the ram and them touch that part of your body that bother you, you will be cured. Julie watched in fascination as one woman rubbed every inch of both her body and the rams. No word yet on what sticking incense in its nose will do.
