I designed a koi photo using photoshop (dimensions 20' x 30") and had it mounted on a foam board.
Next on the list was having a scroll of some sort that has Chinese calligraphy in it. I don't think Photoshop could help me out on this one. So, I had somebody make on for us. Thanks to Louie Siy, we now have this:
The other calligraphy work means "welcoming dragon wins all." It sounds like something I'd hear on a bet, but then again, translating Chinese to English isn't easy. I'll accept the jungle English translation.
Well, that's for the year-long prep. Will post again for the preps that we made for the offering table.
