Monday Mural: Year of the Rooster

Happy Lunar New Year, you all.  I found this auspicious mural by Omael Macasa on a Chinatown utility box.  He's done a number of murals in Oakland; this one is in association with Dragon School.  I think the rooster is crowing "Gung Hay Fat Choy" or 新年快樂.

  2. Nice to see a cheery rooster - my New Year celebrations were illuminated terracotta warriors rather than roosters.

  4. I have always liked roosters except when they crow too early! Very appropriate mural here at the beginning of their New year!
