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.

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 $4000+ Giclee printer. The fine lines and complex geometry would make it impractical to paint this artwork by hand.
