I'm reading a book right now called " China Symbols Dictionary".
I've open this topic to share the interesting issues (or points) which I find in the book.
Please do share any topic you want about the relevant China threads too.

This puts an entirely different face on it.

The first interesting point

It takes Bear instead of the Wolf in the Chinese version of "Little Red Riding Hood" tale."
Aha, Leslie Nielsen. So I was doubly (or 3x?) wrong. Thanks for straightening me out. So, does that fellow look like you?
Best health wishes for your Cousin,

Name is "Exploring at the Mountains
I wish I could share the painting.
For to give you a sense:
