Lion dance

Announcing the arrival of the lion dance troop...

One of the members arranges 8 oranges, some lettuce and our red packet on the floor.

The cute orange lion steps in, and starts 'chewing' on the lettuce.


It prances around vigorously to the drum beat, tossing oranges and lettuce in the air.


It sits on the floor, moving about to the rhythm...


..sometimes making faces...


...and then it gets up to leave....

..leaving behind a tangerine artwork- prosperity!

Lovely photos. Awww, I want to have a lion dance too! I'd love to be a "piece of lion" and dance about like that, but not the back end. I'd get lost and probably go the wrong way = stre-etched lion

:-D
