Chinese New Year just passed and it’s the year of the rabbit, but I can’t help make a post about last year’s auspicious animal – the beautiful, bold, and powerful tiger.

It was on display at the Customs House in Sydney, Australia last year for Chinese New Year. The tigers combine ancient lantern making methods with? digital design and fabrication technology, bringing east and ?west together through tradition and innovation. The big cats are a collaboration between multinational architectural ?practice Laboratory for Visionary Architecture (LAVA) and Customs House to mark the year of the tiger and raise awareness about the ?endangered status of tigers. The tigers are at 8.5 feet (2.5 metres) high and 23 feet(7 metres) long and weighs approximately 440 pounds and use fully recyclable materials, aluminium and? barrisol, a new light weight reusable stretch material. Pulsating low energy? LED lighting brings the sculptures to life.

It’s so grand and beautiful, would have loved to see it in person.

I normally make a quick attempt to fly (okay, speed walk) by Herald Square Macy’s on my way to karate every night because it’s just so busy around that area. But what gave me pause last Thursday was Macy’s beautiful window display featuring a collaboration between Pratt and international designer Ralph Pucci. Pratt Institute’s School of Art and Design worked exclusively in paper to dress Pucci’s Spring 2011 “GIRL2″ mannequins. They are so beautiful; the featured ones are my favorite. If you live in NYC, you must walk by, your jaw will drop…well at least mine did. =)

Flower Poems

Sun flower
In the bright sunny day
My eye’s make a flower their pray
A flower that has indeed crossed
The boundaries of the lost beauty in flowers

A flower which has a very pleasant
View and answer you’re eyes like
Looking at a creasant in the dark sky
This flowers behavior is utmost

Majestic and generous and it
Has the most delightful look
Like looking at a sunset hill
This flower is known as The sun flower
