Pandas, yellow umbrellas dominate Post cartoonist Harry Harrison's new show

"Items for sale at exhibition opening next week include both new works and selected cartoons from the Post

Monday, 21 September, 2015, by Enid Tsui (enid.tsui@scmp.com)

As the first anniversary of the Occupy Central protests looms, Hong Kong's top political cartoonist has a timely exhibition that should satisfy fans of his daily dose of biting perspicacity in the South China Morning Post. In "Pandamic", Harry Harrison will present new works featuring both the panda - his favourite representation of mainland China - and the yellow umbrella, emblem of last year's mass protests for universal suffrage for the 2017 chief executive election in Hong Kong. These are original, non-commissioned drawings inspired by China's "recent flirtation with Hong Kong's political reform", he says. Selected Post cartoons from the past three to four years are also being offered for sale.

The timing of the selling exhibition wasn't planned to coincide with the September 28 anniversary of the start of hte Occupy Central protests, Harrison says. Rather, it is a happy coincidence given that he is best known for his political commentary. His daily "Harry's View" cartoon has appeared in the Post since 2001 and, in the best tradition of political satire, conveys both a deep understanding of news events and enough humour to deflect the propaganda and hypocrisy that comes his way. They are all the more devastating because the artist is not afraid to stick his neck out and take on the powerful by making them look utterly ridiculous.

Harrison's no-holds-barred approach has seen him practically sweep the board in the editorial cartooning category of the Society of Publishers in Asia awards, as well as being recognised at the annual Hong Kong Human Rights Press Awards. The new works are standalone drawings without words - quite different to his newspaper cartoons, in which the characters are usually seen saying something punchy about one of that day's top news stories."

Red Cranes @ Kamikaze Cave ~ by Jade Richards-Butler ~ More WW II memorial cranes by this artist.

Jade writes on Instagram:
"Red Cranes HK Red Cranes is an art project which entails making 1000 paper cranes and leaving them at various World War II sites around Hong Kong.

I'm currently working on an art project which involves myself making 1,000 paper cranes and taking to various WW II sites around Hong Kong. I am a Lamma resident.

Location Two: Kamikaze Grottos, Lamma Island. This cave situated on the trail to Sok Kwu Wan, Lamma Island was used to conceal speedboats for Japanese soldiers. The boats were to be packed with explosives and planned to be used in suicide missions in the case of an enemy attack.

Each crane is folded by me, and then hand painted with resin, strung and beaded. Each string holds 40 cranes."

Just an urban myth. There were never any kamikaze boats there, or anywhere in Hong Kong.
I spent some time looking into this a while ago and there isn't a scrap of proof.

The cave might have been used to store ammunition, or fuel, or tins of sardines. No one can say; it's just an empty cave, there are no relics.

Japan had already surrendered weeks before the Royal Navy returned to Hong Kong.

I think the name came first and the stories were made up to match, long after the war.

FINALLY, the paywall has been removed from SCMP.COM. One of the last holdouts against free news and information to the public has been forced to give up their most obnoxious and very expensive paywall when Alibaba bought them recently.

So our occasional links to their very rare Lamma-related stories won't be greeted with a NO FREE VIEWS, SUBSCRIBE FIRST! pop-up ad anymore. Welcome to the online world of (almost) free information where you need to make your income from other sources, not subscribers, similar to free, terrestrial TV and almost all other commercial, online media.
