More about Yu Shou Long
The Warring States period spanned over three centuries where rival Chinese states embarked on long, perilous battles for territorial dominance. During that time, a double-headed black tortoise, Xuan Wu, caused massive catastrophe throughout the country and had to be subdued by three monks. Its powers were harnessed to create the strongest weapon—the Yu Shou Long, to protect the nation and its people.
In eastern culture, dragons are sacred creatures that symbolize immense power, fortune and luck. True to its name, the Yu Shou Long features a two-headed dragon fiercely guarding the shrine that is housed on its back. When dusk beckons, its eyes will light up, reflecting the heavenly powers of the moon.
Standing at 11 inches tall in its most basic form, the intricate two-headed dragon has LED lights fitted in its eyes with a modular shrine on its back.
