Plastered Reliefs and Sculptures

Plastered reliefs and sculptures, which are moulded clay with vivid shapes and painted in various colours, are found on the upper walls or the gable corner walls of the Lo Pan Temple.

Two plastered sculptures beneath each side of the mural on the entrance wall are protected by wired netting. The plastered sculpture to the right is 'Four Hoaryheads of Shang Shan' and the one to the left depicts the characters Qiu Ranke, Li Jing and Hong Funu – the protagonists of 'Three Heroes'. Other plastered sculptures scattered on the walls of the first and rear halls depict characters from the famous fantasy novel "Investiture of the Deities".
