Alexis Diaz, known for his detailed murals of fantastic creatures in a constant state of metamorphisis, recently created a new work in Hong Kong for hkwalls depicting the chinese mythical creature Qilin.
While Diaz chose to keep the traditional elements of a dragon mixed with a stag, the body resembles more that of a horse than an ox.
Diaz worked on the mural for four days, with the help of fellow artist Filio Gavez. Alexis Diaz had been invited by the US consulat and stayed in Hong Kong from march 24th until april 1st.
Qilins are known as peaceful creatures of kindness and compassion.
