China Red

By Artborghi @artborghi

Red is the lucky color in China. And it is the only way to fight back Nian, the mythological man-eater beasts living under mountains and seas. From red flags to red wedding dresses, the red color in China paints whatever brings luck and power. Including the rare and very expensive Arowana / dragon fishes, with their red, coin-shaped scales.
