Description

Label:

Dragon. Fortune. In Chinese culture, these words are associated with the celebration of the Lunar New Year and other auspicious occasions. This colorful dragon comes from a menagerie of whimsical animals by Taiwanese artist Hung Yi. These gleeful creatures embody traditional wishes for abundance and prosperity, transformed for this century by morphing decorative patterns drawn from Taiwanese folk art and Japanese textile design with pop art and children’s cartoons from around the world.
