BEIJING -- The construction of 21-km-long concrete and marble dragon along the ridge of a mountain near a national forest in central China's Henan Province is drawing the controversy in the country.

Zulong Company has completed construction on the dragon's 29.9-meter-high head and 800 meters of its body at a cost of more than 30 million yuan. The final cost is expected to be ten times that amount.

Will it attract visitors in the future? Will it have other functions in the long run? If you do not think so, what do you how to use the money?

impressive...

but 300M RMB geez

i adore sculptures and bigger the better but this is kind of outrageous

300M RMB could be invested for better welfare system, human rights, and job creation

and i especially dont appreicate the advertising aspect of all this... which seems to me, the chinese are catching on quickly of the corporate commercialism plague of the west... sad

how does a company with only 1M RMB capital pull this off? mind boggling*

An iconic site, create an attraction for tourist...

....which allows for HOTELs, RESTAURANTS, GIFTS shops to be build!

and more jobs for those poor folks you seem to care for!


The Malaysian Twin Tower project has created a lot of jobs for Malaysians!



Can't you figure out such simple solutions!
(anyway, according to China Daily, it is also a sand storm barrier)
