2012 Year of the Dragon

Dragon Calligraphy
by Tai Oi Yee

This beautiful calligraphy was created by Tai Oi Yee. Artist Note: " this is Chinese calligraphy of the word dragon in my wild grass style. You can still vaguely see the head and claws on the left side, and the back and tail on the right side". Tai Oi Yee is a member of the North American branch of ICCPS. 

2012 is Year of the Dragon and it will arrive on February 4, 2012. (Note: Chinese New Year Day is on January 23, 2012. The first day of 2012 Chinese Astrology Year is on February 4, 2012.) The  Dragon is a legendary animal and it is the symbol of the emperor in China. Since the Dragon is coated with mysterious color, Chinese consider the dragon to be unpredictable, untouchable and people cannot see its head and tail at the same time. Therefore, we  might see something unexpected happening in 2012. Also a person with too many dragons in the Chinese astrology birth chart will become smarter, sly and unpredictable in the coming year.

Happy New Year Everyone! I wish you all the best in 2012.
May we see peace and prosperity.
