Artist's Description

I’m thinking of doing a series with this costume.

Basically, a friend showed me this awesome shop near uni, and it had these tiger heads hanging on the wall, white and orange. i figured white tigers were more impressive so i bought one. i got the lantern and the fan from the same shop too. I wanted to use them the moment I saw them.
so the other night ( 6/5/10/) me and a friend went out and took some shots. this one was my favorite.
I was referencing avatar-the last air-bender ( a anime cartoon shown on Nickelodeon, which director M. Night Shyamalan recently turned into a film) a particular episode where they main charatcers learn about a form of martial art that uses fans as the weapon, the Egyptian Gods and Goddesses, Kung Fu Panda, the art of Tai Chi, artist Polixeni Papapetrou and her recent work Between Worlds .
I haven’t yet figured out where this series is going, but I know I want to find more animal heads, especially a panda, and do more.
