Street-side calligrapher

街頭書法家


在農曆新年期間,全香港的書法家都非常忙碌。圖中一位路邊書法家在書寫吉祥字句,通常是用金色的顏料寫字在紅色的紙上,名叫「揮春」。農曆新年時,這些揮春都是貼在門前的。

Calligraphers throughout Hong Kong are kept very busy during Chinese New Year. Here a street-side calligrapher writes auspicious characters, usually in gold on a red background, called Fai Chuan. These are put up outside front doors all over the territory at Lunar New Year.
