The Lunar New Year is coming so I made this to hang on my door. The character "fu" at the center means good fortune, and we have printed versions on the door (and on the calender) every year.
The red motifs at the corners are bats(!). In Chinese bat is also pronounced as "fu", so bat motifs are considered to bring good fortune as well. I copied the bat motif painted on some bowls, and tried to make the outline with wire (which is not successful because there are too many sharp angles in the motif). Anyway, thought I'd show this funny draft I drew (top: copied from a rice bowl; bottom: cartoon bat)
Thanks for looking. C&C much appreciated.
