Carp, Đông Hồ district
Wood cut painting

February 19th is the Lunar New Year, y'all! Salazar picked this woodcut painting from the Đông Hồ district of Vietnam, where this particular type of artwork has been traditionally used seasonally specifically for the Lunar New Year. The best part about these pieces is how graphic they are--every image has the same nature, and it makes them all very fun. The school of fish in this piece is especially lively.

Send your SIA photos to Salazar by February 22nd to be included in this week's roundup! Enjoy this one.
