Animamiables

Who folded these? Walking through the icy Summer Palace today, I found a collection of grass-animals stuck in the ground. The usual tourists and vendors seemed to be away hibernating; and we were clearly the only people for miles around. I therefore conclude that the animals themselves created these sculptures, and that the spot where they were located was of great cultural importance (like our putting flags at the North Pole). It was certainly cold enough.
