Tung Lung Chau Rock Carving, Tung Lung Chau, Hong Kong 東龍洲石刻

At the northern coast of Tung Lung Chau. It was recorded in the Jiaqing edition of Xin'an Gazetteer during the Qing Dynasty (1644-1911): "A dragon impression on rock is found at Fo Tang Men; the form of a dragon was carved on the rock's vertical surface". This carving, measuring 180cm x 240 cm, ranks as the largest rock carving known in Hong Kong.

 

The design, which believed to symbolize a dragon, consists of complicated and tortuous lines.

 

石刻有一百八十米乘二百四十米大,是在香港發現的最大石刻,由很多複雜線條組成,相信是代表龍的設計。
