In the Red Shadows
Another dark icon bathed in red light. I really like how ominous these feel…

In addition to red and gold, this icon from a tiny temple on the edge of Tai Hang has a white dress, which conveys a peaceful feeling.

The icons of Chinese religion are so different from anything western that I find them utterly fascinating. I guess you can see how Christian missionaries might have thought these to be demons…

Hong Kong is littered with tiny temples. There are three within walking distance of my house and many many more I’ve been to. The scenes are often red and gold, and lit with numerous candles or lights. This one was the first entirely gold colour icon I saw though.
