Hi there,

This photo is very rare as the art of the Pei Yau (pí xiū in Putonghua) Dancing (舞 貔貅) had been deminishing in the past few decads.  We seldom see this these days.

Best Regards,

T

I am glad to know the photo captured something now rare.  All the photos were taken by my late and former husband, Fred Moritz.  He took many more and I will have to review them to see if I can find other interesting scenes besides the ones on this website now.  Best, Kirstin
