The #YearOfTheOx begins with the #ChineseNewYear on Friday, but for many Asian Americans, this year’s holiday is marked by anxiety and unease, a stark contrast to the usually hopeful attitudes for luck and prosperity. 🧧🧵 by @johannacli:
1/ Ever since the coronavirus pandemic began, for business owners in Chinatown, life has been harder than ever.
2/ “We’re trying to be as hopeful as we can because that’s what the New Year is – having hope that the new year will be better. But realistically, the next three or four months will be very tough for us.” – Patrick Mock, manager of 46 Mott Bakery in NYC

1/ No, no es una hucha. Este cerdito es un biberón-sonajero (guttus tintinnabula). Tiene 2400 años y fue especialmente concebido para bebés lactantes. ¿Por qué lo sabemos? ¿Cómo funcionaba? Os lo cuento 👇

2/ La boquilla del biberón (que aquí es el rabito) de este tipo de piezas tenía un diámetro muy pequeño, para que la leche saliese casi gota a gota y no como un chorro, evitando así que el bebé se atragantase. Tras alimentarse es el momento de reposar. Entonces....
3/...este biberón, ya vacío, se "convertía" en sonajero, su segunda función. ¿Cómo? Gracias a las dos esferas que contiene en su interior y que al chocar producen sonido, algo que relajaría al bebé.
Sí os fijáis, el cerdito tiene los ojos humanizados y pintados al detalle.
