Hidden Dragon, Crouching Tiger, Roaring Lion, the Galloping Horse and more..
I was looking at a news report about Apple using Chinese slave labor to make iPods. Although I have seen map of China numerous times, this time I could recognize a Dragon hidden in the map outline!
Then I opened a world map. Using a little bit of imagination, I could then see a crouching tiger in sub-continent,
a roaring lion in Europe, a galloping horse in Mongolia and North, a bear in Russia, an elephant, rhino and a gorilla in Africa, an emu in Australia, an eagle in North America and so on… Here is a quick and rough sketch of my imagination:
If more color is added to the animals, perhaps painted as they would be traditionally, this concept could be used in a jig-saw puzzle or a T-shirt design.
