12 Animal Years of Chinese Zodiac

Chinese Zodiac - Animal Symbols - Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the Chinese zodiac print mounted to this wall scroll

This is a print of all 12 animals of the Chinese zodiac along with their corresponding Chinese character. The inside ring has the 5 elements along with their Chinese characters as well. These are arranged in chronological order going counter-clockwise.

If you want to know your zodiac sign, check out my Chinese Zodiac page.

This zodiac motif is printed on handmade/hand-pressed Chinese xuan paper with a high-fiber content (you will see lots of natural husks and fibers pressed into this paper). The artwork was then mounted to a handmade two-tone silk brocade wall scroll.

The result is a beautiful and elegant presentation of all the animals, elements and characters of the Chinese zodiac system.

The print was created on a fine art Giclee printer. The fine lines and complex geometry would make it impractical to paint this artwork by hand. The image above does not do justice to the quality of the fine lines and detail of this print.

Gary's random little things about China:

I pee freely:

If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.

In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
