Year of the Rooster 5

Each of the 12 Chinese zodiac animals has an associated protective deity – the 12 Heavenly Generals. This one is Mihira, who protects people born in the year of the rooster. You can see him and the other 11 Heavenly Generals in the large plaza outside Po Lin Monastery, on Lantau Island in Hong Kong.
