Would you pet those ones ?

July / Juillet 2009
Usually, people can see the ugly statues of two gods near the entrance of buddhits temples. Those two gods are supposed to scare and prevent the evil to enter the temple. I wonder if those animals got a similar function.
Habituellement, on peut voir les statues hideuses de deux dieux à l'entrée des temples bouddhistes. Ces dieux sont supposés faire peur aux être maléfiques pour les empêcher d'entrer. Je me demande si ces animaux ont la même utilité.
