Jan. 31, 2014 was the start of the Chinese New Year and the Year of the Horse. To commemorate this auspicious occasion, I wanted to create something a little different than the norm. One would think that I would create a magnificent horsey Demon, but NO, I chose to go a more Asian route!
Despite what many people think, my creation is a Qilin, or chinese unicorn, NOT a dragon! However, his Booty Mark does say “horse” in Chinese. As his name suggests, he is indeed “lohung” but I chose to be *very* subtle about it, look closely.
