Chun lian is a special type of Duilian, or couplet used only during the Chinese New Year as part of its celebration. Duilian comprises of a couplet written on vertical strips of red paper in the best calligraphic style one can muster to illustrate one's wish for the coming year.Here I try to use goldfish to depict some of this chinese couplets to usher in this year of the Pig.Feel free to add some auspicious couplets as we celebrate together for the coming year.Forgive my limited chinese vocab should there be any shortcoming on my part blush.gif

Sorry....... For the benefit of our oversea members let me try to traslate the above chinese slogan.

The first line reads:May each household have a golden lion(symbolised here by lionhead oranda)to bring forth great fortune and happiness

The second line reads:May each family have in reserve much gold(symbolised by the ryukin)to receive the new year good_very.gif


Now here is another common one

年年有余


This means you have surplus year after year

Look at the surplus of GOLD I have this year sweatingbullets.gif sweatingbullets.gif sweatingbullets.gif

The word 寿 in chinese symbolise longevity and life .The ranchu in chinese are sometime called 寿星公

I found a classic couplet which translate as

Heaven add another year to our age with spring comes prosperity of abundance.

Orhhhh... "天增岁月人增寿" means "When heaven age by a year, human increases his number of ranchus".
"人增寿" is telling us to buy more ranchus for chinese new year. yes.gif Aright... good_very.gif Point noted biggrin.gif No wonder there is always a tendency to buy more ranchus during CNY....

This applies to Top_view_ranchu as he has increased his ranchu number by 2382 shiok.gif

处处金鱼金处处 重重绿水绿重重


translates as everywhere you find goldfish in green water of deepest hue.

The next couplet describes a little bit on the process of my quarantine


喜庆花红送玉面 吉祥爆竹接黑龙


As auspicious bloom of red send off jade face(small ranchu),the sound of crackers herald the arrival of the black dragon(moor)


Let me usher the new year with this black whopper measuring almost 8 inch(tip of mouth to tail end)….A Kuro demekin .In short a black telescopic over a ryukin body.Feel free to comment. It is not out of quarantine yet but show promising vigor and great deportment. The brassy belly is one of the most obvious demerits in this specimen but the overall physiques are quite exceptional and appealing to me

Next couplet comprises of 3 sets of 3 words of blessings

The left vertical has the word,长 which mean longetivity

So it reads
May human live long,May moon always be round,and may spring stays forever

The right one has the word 永 which means lasting or forever

May a country flourish,May a family be harmonious and may our fish(hobby) live forever....... rolleyes.gif


let me post this....later then upload a photo wink.gif

What is Chinese New Year without the prancing lion and here I include the traditional lionhead against one of my ranchu which has the closest resemblance to it and together may the two ursher another prosperous new year for all who view.
