The stamp went on sale Thursday, Jan.5, drawing the heavy crowds that normally flock to buy the annual Lunar New Year stamps. But the dragon’s attacking pose on this year’s stamp has led some people to call it too ferocious.

Another writer, Tan Xudong, called it an "incomparably ugly dragon-year stamp."
