"MenDuns", gate pier stones, are placed in pair as guardian at entrance for Chinese traditional courtyard homes, normally carved using one piece of stone, implying safety, health and good luck. We found this antique pair in front of a red ancient architectural wall of Ritan park, Beijing Temple of the Sun, built in 1530 during late Ming Dynasty as a venue where the emperors offered sacrifice to the Sun.
As a venue for emperors, RiTan follows the imperial styles where red, yellow and green colors can be used. We love this vivid red color representing warmth and the highest amount of "Yang", positive energy, in traditional Chinese culture.
