Let the games begin

The 2008 Summer Olympics hosted by The Peoples Republic of China, has started. I’ve included the Fuwa (mascots), designed by Han Meilin. The Fuwa consist of five members that incorporate the fish, giant panda, fire, Tibetan antelope, and swallow. They roughly correspond with the five elements of Chinese philosophy (water, metal, fire, wood, and earth).
