Spirit of Nian

Oil on canvas 91.5 x 91.5 cm
On the ocasion of the Chinese New Year, the year of Rabbit, I have painted a painting which represents part of the Chinese legendary going back three thousand years . At the beginning of spring the people of acient time in China have beat the ferocious beaset called "NIAN" and this legendary believe has formed the traditional Spring Festival or Chinese New Year.
