Chao Feng Eye Opening Ceremony
My pictures from the eye opening ceremony for the Nine Dragon Academy’s first lion Chao Feng (Cháo Fēng 謿凮). The eye opening ceremony is a ceremony which awakens a lion and brings him to life. The lion is given a name and personality and is welcomed as a member of the family. Chao Feng is one of the Emperor Dragon’s nine sons. Chao Feng is fearless, he loves to take risks and watch from high places, so he can often be found decorating the corners of palace roofs in ancient China.
