In China, Hakutaku’s icon has been expressed like “tiger’s head and dragon’s body” or “dragon’s head and animal body”. This icon spreaded from China to Korea. And it has been handed down. In contrast, Hakutaku icon is expressed like “human face and ox body” in both Japan and Ryukyu（琉球）. Xian（西安） Huxian（戸県） ’s Hakutaku statue show us two kinds of possibility. The one can provide the evidence for the ox body Hakutaku, which appears in China, the other can show the possibility Hakutaku and Kirin （Qilin 麒麟） that is made up a pair.
