My favorite at any exhibition (whether for the Chinese New Year or at various tournaments) was always the Lion Dance. There are tons of examples online, but this one from a junior high school is a favorite.
Back to the year of the Monkey for 2016:
I love the following images for the year of the monkey.

I realize now that the above image
(although I found it somewhere else)
is by Zen Brush who has an Etsy shop.
So charming and whimsical.

I love these images and realize it takes years to master the techniques of Chinese brush art and Japanese sumi-e.
