The Auspicious Longhorn Beetle




In Chinese, there is a saying that the “golden dragon brings good fortune”. The name of the longhorn beetle in Chinese is “divine bull”, so the four characters at the top (“The Divine Bull Brings Good Fortune”) are a play on the old golden dragon saying. The labels on the beetle are the names of its various body parts (thorax, antennae, etc).
