Warriors in Myeongbujeon of Taebongsa Temple, Iksan City

I’ve seen lots of warriors in Myeonbujeon or Jijangjeon hall up until now. But strangely enough, I didn’t notice the warriors more in detail. I just have looked around and left the hall.

In this visit, I had a chance to look at the warriors more carefully.

What caught my eyes were their hands. There were two warriors left and right in the hall.

The one warrior held the weapon and the yellow dragon in his hands.

Especially the dragon was so impressive, why he held the dragon in his hand like that. Is there any special meaning? In 4 heaven kings gate case, I could see the king held the dragon in his hand. It made estimate there was a story of holding dragon in the hand, in my guess.

The other warrior held the weapons in his hands.

But I was focused on this stomach part. There was a face of the dragon as same as that of 4 heaven kings. It seemed that there seemed a common point between the 4 heaven kings and the warriors in Myeongbujeon.
