Jinluan (金鑾) Temple Festival — 3
Here a smaller ‘divination’ chair is in the ocean. These chairs may be likened to ‘ouija’ boards in that the operators just hold the chair aloft and the god who has come to sit in the chair controls the bearers. This particular god was running around the beach and spent a lot of time in the water. I believe it may be one of the ‘Wu Nian Qian Sui’ (伍年千歲) gods, but it looks like Zhang Tian Shi (張 天 師) with its pointy black ears, black face and long black beard.
