Han Meilin is the author of this year's rat stamp of China. He is the most important contemporary artist of China, and his most well-know work is the mascots Fuwa of the 2008 Olympic Games Beijing.



Exclusive Disclosure: All the mouse manuscripts in Han Meilin's Studio are so touching


Quote:
In an interview, Han Meilin told reporters: "All say mice are ugly, but I don't think so. The most fundamental thing for artists to solve the modeling problem is to be good at discovering the advantages of images and performing modeling. We all see how cute Mickey Mouse is in Disney. I also think that the little mouse's naked tail is very funny, so I will draw their loveliness with this kind of friendly mood.

Han Meilin is also the designer of this year's lunar rat stamp and cover of Liechtenstein.





Quote:
Its second symbolic meaning is its strong vitality. Han Meilin often said that the existence of any creature has its inevitability, and its function and reaction always complement each other. Although people often think that mice are ugly because they live in sewers, this harsh environment has resulted in their superior survival ability. In Han Meilin's view, artists should treat every kind of life with maternal love. No matter whether it is beautiful or ugly in secular eyes, they should try their best to express "truth, goodness and beauty" with "love".

The mouse shown on the Belarus stamp for this year is perhaps a field mouse.

(Hello Idebee, The mice by Han Melin were obviously issued in several different versions if they are the same as those on pages 1 and 8. Cute mice! K.)

Another rat, a flying one, in the set issued by the Isle of Man for this year. The ox is next year's animal, in the drawing he is still asleep.

(By the way, Vayolene is a good hunter of mice! Set of 6 in a sheet telling the story of "Puss in Boots", 1968. K.)

Hi, Kris, the stamps might the same ones, but there are many different products around them. And this time I mainly want to introduce the attitudes and concepts of the author. By the way, your Belarus field mouse is quite cute. I think it's just between a real mouse and a cartoon mouse. :-) And the one with mouse and ox is pretty unique, generally the mouse is more often depicted with last year's pig.

Hi, Vayolene, your Wallis & Futuna rat is drawing a Chinese character Shu, Perhaps he is studying Chinese or practicing his Chinese signature. :-) And pineapples are regarded as a lucky fruit because it's a pun in the local accent of Fujian Provice in southern China, and a must-have fruit during the Spring Festival there.

Another commonly used pun of Shu.
Mouse and Belong have the same pronunciation in Chinese. so in the year of the rat, people often change Belong to Mouse for fun and luck.

In this postmark of Zhengzhou City, there is an idiom of 4 characters. The last character should be Belong, but has been changed to a mouse. The idiom means: it belongs to nobody else but me! Now with a mouse in it, it is funny and joyous, just good for the new rat year.
