This morning we stopped by the Chinese New Year fair at Downtown San Diego. The weather did not cooporate very well but still it was fun to watch the lion and dragon dancers celebrating the Year of the Tiger (4708 on the lunar calendar)
These pictures were made from butterfly wings. I can't imagine how many butterflies were killed for this....
According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2010 is the Year of the Tiger, which commences on February 14, 2010 and ends on February 2, 2011. The Tiger is the third sign in the Chinese Zodiac cycle, and it is a sign of bravery. This courageous and fiery fighter is admired by the ancient Chinese as the sign that keeps away the three main tragedies of a household. These are fire, thieves and ghosts.
I don't believe in horoscopes - I wish you all happy new year!:)
