Loyal Xiezhi

The Xiezhi is a mythical beast from ancient times representing the spirit of the military police. The powerful, austere Xiezhi sculpted out of white Hualian marble and the refined marble bas-relief change subtly with the shifting of light and shadow. The sculptures and the pre-existing main gate complement each other with a corresponding relationship of motion and stillness, affording the piece a regal air.

Loyal Xiezhi utilizes a sense of perspective and the changes in light and shadow on the reliefs to set off this symbol of the military police spirit, conveying the core principles of being “loyal, moral, steadfast, determined, and steady.”
