English: The tomb of Kong Yanjin, the 59th-generation senior-line direct descendant of Confucius and Duke Yansheng. This tomb has an ornate gate arch, bixi turtle with a stele, a pair of guardian figures, and a tombside stele. However, there are presently no animal statues anywhere between the gate and the tomb. It is possible that Kong Yanjin's spirit way actually extends south of the arch and the pedestrian path, and includes the animal statues south of the arch. However, this is problematic due to the presence of another bixi turtle in that "southern extension" - and you don't see more than one turtle in any other spirit way in this area of the cemetery.
