Description Technical Specs Extended Information
The Spring Festival "Chun-jie" or the Lunar New Year is one of the most important celebration in Chinese culture. It’s a critical time of rebirth in which the whole community comes together to seek the blessings of heaven for a prosperous and harmonious year a request that is symbolically carried out by the majestic lion.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Simon Ng features a traditional Chinese lion with one of the two dancers visible as he holds up the lion’s head. The dancer’s curved body, the position of his feet, and the lion’s bowed head convey a sense of movement and enhance the festive tone of the image. The lion’s large, dragon-inspired head and beard, its ornately detailed face, and its deeply layered body reveal the remarkable craftsmanship required to create a lion costume, and the physicality needed to bring it to life through dance.
