In most people’s minds, Daoist monks are usually wise and clearheaded, yet also austere and detached.

They wear black cloaks, and live in secluded places, untouched by human emotions with a calm and solemn look.

Real Daoist monks may seem inaccessible or unapproachable.

However, these photos of three little kids dressed up as Daoists totally changes this impression. In fact, many bloggers found the series really heartwarming—it’s just too cute to resist.

In the photos, a little boy and two little girls are dressed like Daoist monks, wearing traditional robes and old cloth shoes. The girls’ hair is tied in a bun with a wood hairpin, just like the ancient Daoist monks.
