What is this 'Chinese Dream Monument'?

Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm making a presentation about the Chinese Dream, and I keep running into posters with this winged monument with a lion (?) on top. Especially when I search for images in Chinese (中国梦). Can anyone tell me what it is? What it means and/or where it's located? Googling for "Chinese Dream Monument" doesn't help at all... Thanks a lot!

That monument is called"华表” in Chinese.There are two “华表”s located in the Tiananmen square,which is a important signature place in Beijing.“华表” is a traditional Chinese building used to symbolize solemnity and holiness.

Thanks a lot! I guess I haven't been paying enough attention on Tiananmen, because I never noticed them... I definitely will next time.
