Quick Side Project – Painting Last Name

One thing that slightly bugs me is when I see a lion head with a blank Zhao Pai on the back. In my interpretation (and only mine haha), a lion with a blank Zhao Pai has no owner and therefore is untamed, or at least not as tame as it could be. I find it important to paint a last name or school’s name onto the back of the lion as a means of identification and ownership. Of course, this is only my opinion and not culturally based in any way. I’m probably just finding an excuse to get bugged by blank Zhao Pai’s. 😛

Anyway, I spent a little bit of time painting my girlfriend’s last name onto her lion. Here’s a picture:
