It is sometimes called the dragon horse, a mythical creature that has a lot of legends and stories associated with it.
One legend has it that they were originally guardians of the gates of heaven. Chi Lin is also being associated with the Hou Tu square, a symbol of numbers used in advanced Feng Shui analysis.
