Obwohl es sehr kalt ist, trauen sich einige Herren im Speedo in den kalten See.
Though it’s cold, some guys in speedo are taking a swim in the lake.

The story about Tu’er Ye
“Legend goes that there was an epidemic in North China long ago and doctors could not do anything about it. So the Moon Goddess sent her rabbit to earth to treat the disease. However, because the rabbit is white and the white color was acutally related to death in the past, people did not allow the rabbit to enter their houses to treat the disease. The rabbit realized it and went to the temple to borrow the outfit  of the saints there. That’s where Rabbit God’s look is from. People began to revere him after that”.
“Rabbit God sits on different things ranging from Kylin, tiger, elephant, lotus, to peony. Lotus is typical to Kwan-yin, a Buddhist god, making Rabbit God a more sacred figure, while peony symbolizes wealth. Kylin and tiger are typical ausicious animals in Chinese culture, all embodying the good wishes of the people”.

Zum Abschluss liess ich mir ein Bild mit meinem Namen machen. Es war sehr interssant zu sehen, wie es gemacht wurde. Er hat sowas wie einen Stempel benutzt, den er einfach in die Farben tunkte und dann einfach und schnell ein Fisch malte oder einen Drachen. Unglaublich diese Technik.
