This set is the last one for the postcard collection that is in session till this Sunday. This character generally represents “longevity”. However, when I try to explain its meaning in English, I always put “happy” before longevity. For, I believe living a happy, long life is the most important. Technically, for this one I used a brush with longer and softer hair than most normal ones.
Just like the entry I posted yesterday, these are very small ornaments hopefully to be displayed in your house. As a matter of fact, they are postcards. I am sending out these little pieces abroad. I hope people abroad will experience this amazing culture and art and if possible, I desperately wish they would love it.
