Summary

Chinese has many set phrases, or chéngyǔ: four-word phrases that communicate a concept quickly to someone who knows the cultural and historical context.

These cocktail sticks are my take on 鹤立鸡群: a crane standing among chickens.

Give the flamingo to your guest of honor, and let everyone else be a chicken.

More on chéngyǔ over at the blog:

Instructions

Includes flamingo, rooster, and hen cocktail spears facing both left and right. Also characters for "luck" and "harmony" on the chickens and flamingo, respectively.

(See the blog post for the Chinese puns involved.)

Use the power of the hypotenuse to print these on smaller build platforms.

I really love the way you're combining learning a language with 3D printing.

Thanks! There's only so many hours in the day, so hobbies gotta do double duty.
