HONG KONG, Jan. 21, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — An iconic tourist attraction located just a stone’s throw away from Temple Mall, Wong Tai Sin Temple is a go-to spot for making New Year’s wishes at the start of the Lunar New Year. To mark an auspicious start to the Year of the Tiger in a fresh way, Temple Mall presents the “Tapestry of Luck” campaign, sending wishes of peace while also honouring tradition with 12 cloth tigers, representing a folk craft on China’s list of National Intangible Cultural Heritage. The 12 cloth tigers turn up the festive vibes in the mall with their spirited expressions and gestures, spreading joy for a prosperous, cheerful year to come.
12 Lucky Tigers for 12 Months of Fortune
From 20 January onwards, the spirited “Lucky Cloth Tigers” installation will fill Temple Mall North with Chinese New Year blessings. More than just a traditional toy, the stuffed cloth tiger doll is an ancient folk craft sewn by elders as a talisman that protects their infant family members.
Decked out in colourful paints, embroideries and paper art, the 12 adorable stuffed mascots usher in an energetic start to the New Year. The stylised cloth tigers are embroidered with the auspicious motifs of New Year bouquets on the body and the Chinese character for “king” (“王”) on the forehead. The embroidery is courtesy of French needlework by Dream a little Dream Embroidery, a studio run by a local female artist who studied at the Royal School of Needlework in the United Kingdom as well as in France, bringing together Chinese and Western traditions, as well as the old and the new.
