Mu Nu Qiang (木女牆)

Mu Nu Qiang (木女牆, lit. 'Wooden woman's wall'), also known as Mu Nu Tou (木女頭, lit. 'Wooden woman's head') is basically a wooden wall on wheels. Mu Nu Qiang is named after the Chinese term for battlement, Nu Qiang (女牆, lit. 'Woman's wall'), and is used as an emergency replacement for damaged battlement. It is very similar to Gulyay-gorod (Гуля́й-го́род).
