Wikipedia definition
4. Bixi (tortoise)Bixi, also called guifu (龟趺) or baxia (霸下), is a stone tortoise, used as a pedestal for a stele or tablet. Tortoise-mounted stelae have been traditionally used in the funerary complexes of Chinese emperors and other dignitaries. Later, they have also been used to commemorate an important event, such as an emperor's visit or the anniversary of World War II victory. Besides China, they can be found in Vietnam, Mongolia, Korea, Japan, and even the Russian Far East.
