Hen Perching On Name Tablet

Her perching on name tablet written in Chinese

A hen perched on the name tablet written in Chinese

Shot in the city of Yangon, Myanmar.

The street I walked was located in the Chinatown. Yet it was difficult to feel Chinese culture by just walking. Looking around, I found a big name tablet hung above an entrance of a building. It was written with Chinese characters. According to my sources, what was written there was an era name which was used by Rouran Khaganate, a country once took the reins the Mongolian Plateau from the late 4th century until the middle 6th century. I wondered why the owner called the building such a name. Maybe this temple was a kind of Taoist temple.

Yet this was not the only enigma. Looking closer, a hen perched silently on the name tablet. Its appearance was fierce as if it was a game chicken. Perhaps, it might be a divine messenger.
