Today I got a pretty gift from my Chinese friend, it is called “Chinese knotting“. It is a beautiful and exquisite butterfly knotted in two colors: pink and yellow. My friend said, this kind of knotting is very popular in China especially during Chinese New Year. Some lucky animals in China like fish, dragon, turtle, phoenix as well as some Chinese characters such as “happy”, “fortune” and “long life” are the traditional patten in those knotting.
Since this week, every Saturday we will write a post about animals, lovely, stranger, ugly, funny… all about all interesting and diversity animals in this planet. Hope you enjoy.

When I first saw these floating sculptures, my mind was totally blown away. These highly-dynamic sculptures by visual artist Claire Morgan are captivating on so many different levels. Many of the animals in her artwork seem to evoke a potential for freedom and life’s poignant vulnerability. The relationship between movement and stillness is compelling in her installations, while the compositional patterns she creates form a beautiful rhythmic tone.

At the beginning of this month, we saw a fascinating cake land by artist “Carl Warner”, which is a house decorated by delicious cakes made of painted wood or cardboard. While today, we will present you with a chocolate park in real chocolate; accurately it is about 80,000 kilograms of chocolate, imported from Belgium.
All the displays in the park are made by chocolate, such as: terracotta army, Buddhas, great wall, robe and even things like the “Ming Dynasty porcelain” in below picture are also made in chocolate. Unbelievable? They just look so real to me and can’t imagine that is made by chocolate. I do want to taste this antique-like chocolate .
