On Beijing in Photos #12: Animals on the roof

Apparently, there are meaning behind those animals on the top of the roof. In ancient China, the "lucky" numbers are odd numbers. And in Forbidden City, being the highest of the highest form of status a person could be, the house where the emperor lives in would have the most animals, i.e. 11. And this one in the photo, clearly isn't the abode of the emperor. LOL.
