Dragon from Hong Kong

Alan sent me new Year of the Dragon cover from Hong Kong. The cover has pstmark of 19th of January and it arrived on 30th of January.
The Dragon is an auspicioius, mythical crature incarnated as an emperor, representing supreme power and commanding great respect. It is belived that people born in the Year of the Dragon are confident, courageous and clever.
These four stamps on cover depict the Dragon in various forms - a fire dragon spiked with glowing joss sticks (1.40), glittering statue of a golden dragon (2.40), a spirited dragon performing the traditional dragon dance (3) and a lifelike dragon engraved on a stone wall (5).
Thank you Alan for beautiful cover and explanations!
