Oroville Chinese Temple

Yesterday we went to Oroville to see an old friend and her two kids.  Before seeing them (and their animals) we visited this Chinese temple.  Here's the big bowl out front.

Here's an offering thing in the main temple where people have left coins, candy, trinkets.

Here's a closer shot which features pink rose earrings where the rose part is made of ribbon--I had some like this when I was a kid.

Here's the bamboo by the drinking fountain and near the moon room.

I loved the shadow puppet heads.

Can you guess which one's my favorite?  Yes, the sad green-faced demon.

And here's some dragon art.
