More about Qilin
Qilin is a mythical creature and is a combination of several animals. In general, Qilin may have the body of a deer or horse or an ox and is covered with the scales of a fish. Its head is dragon-like. Although it may come across as intimidating, legends suggest that Qilin was actually gentle and peaceful. In this depiction, it is seen to be walking on clouds, as it refuses to harm even a blade of grass by walking on it. However, it is also known to possess supernatural powers and they are only revealed when situation calls for them.

Therefore, Qilin is regarded as an auspicious sign. It is also said that Qilin only appeared during the reign of a good ruler, or shortly before the birth or death of a sage.
