Lion Dancer

Lion Dancer (舞獅)
Equipment: Canon 30D, Canon EF 24-105mm f/4 L IS USM
Event: Kam Tin Hung Shing Festival (錦田洪聖寶誕)
Date: 4 March, 2007

The lion costume may be operated by pair of dancers. The single dancer springs about while energetically moving and shaking the head and operating the jaws and eyes.

The lion moves from place to place he looks for some green vegetables such as lettuce which are hung above the doors of houses or businesses. Hidden in the leaves is a red packet of money. The lion eats the lettuce and red packet. He then scatters lettuce leaves to symbolize a fresh start for the new year and the spreading of good luck.
