At Melaka, we passed by this beautiful Chinese building.

Notice that they draw two huge Deities picture to protect the gate.

The Deities drawn here are famous heroes from Three Kingdom era, Zhang Fei (left) and Guan Yu (right).

These two Generals are sworn brothers of Shu ruler, Liu Bei. Their expertise in battlefield are legendary.

The details of this painting is brilliant.

The scary part is, do you noticed that the eyes of the guardians following you wherever you are? :)
