Located at the busy junction of Leighton Road, Morrison Hill Road and Wong Nai Chung Road, this giant gold dragon guards the entrance to Causeway Bay. It's also one of the most criticized public sculptures in Hong Kong.
Batten: "There's a lot of things that are bad about this, but it is what it is. It doesn't compromise itself like something that tries too hard to be art. It's totally kitsch but I don't mind it. It's the too-serious stuff that we should worry about. Besides, it's there for feng shui purposes, to make people feel happy and safe."
Lau: "As a person who has been in China and Hong Kong a lot, dragons arouse nothing but the question, 'Again?' The statue actually looks like one of those in a Chinese restaurant. And also, why do we have to begin our genealogy with a mythical creature?"
I use this giant, gold dragon statue as a point of reference. It’s on the line of Causeway Bay and Wan Chai and pretty hard to miss.
