In the East the Tiger is the master of the land and is strongest in its home of the bamboo forest. While the Dragon is the master of all water. These two beasts are thought of as opposing forces, like yin and yang. While also in legends of the East, rabbits are thought to live on the moon.
All of this was the inspiration for these images. I had a good time with this one. But I will think twice about doing a triptych again. haha
2010 was the year of the Tiger, 2011 was the year of the Rabbit, and 2012 is the year of the Dragon.
