Also spotted this Invader mosaic in Hong Kong – a bit of a surprise, since HK isn’t very welcoming of unauthorised art.
Here are some more interesting stairs that we saw during our trip to Hong Kong last month. The colourfully painted stairs above are in Aberdeen, on Hong Kong island. The stairs below are painted with town names and years. They are in Causeway Bay and commemorate the Olympic Games up to the Beijing Olympics.
And these stairs lined with comic book characters lead up from Nathan Road to Kowloon Park.
We came across plenty of impressive calligraphy during our visit to Hong Kong last month – much of it written on walls. The two large characters shown above and below are at Hau Wong Temple in Kowloon. They mean longevity (above) and crane (the bird, below)
This one is beside the hiking trail from Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island to Chung Kung, and means Buddha.
And we saw all these people feverishly writing on a wall at Wong Tai Sin Temple, presumably seeking good luck at Chinese New Year.
As well as yesterday’s tigers, we also came across lots of dragons during our visit to Hong Kong last month.
These three photos of dragons were taken at Po Lin Monastery on Lantau Island.
And we spotted this sneaky dragon hiding on the ceiling of the Guan Yin Temple in Causeway Bay, looking like it might swoop down on unsuspecting visitors.
