The other 8 unique Dragons are carved full dragons guarding the outside the the shrine. They are hand carved so accurate and precise that they are actually movable pedestals, that can be turned by hand, around and move up and down. They are 9 inches each. Inside: The shrine has what I call a walkway that goes around the entire shrine, with 8 entrances nicely carved and leading to the main area. Each of those octagonal areas leading into the entrance to the main area are 4 inches wide. The main flat area originally was used for incense or candles top of the inside of the roof shows minor scorched marks. But, you have to look deep inside and up with a flashlight to see it. The height inside from floor to ceiling is 14 inches. The light fixture and blue light will be included. Of course, any light bulb can replaced with. The blue bulb, or not used at all. They are heavy, very fragile, and need to be packed well. Free local pick-up in Sedona, AZ. Additional photos available upon asking.
