The Dragon is the only mythical creature in the Chinese Zodiac and is the most revered in all of China. Chris’s dragon is inspired by his first trip to the Forbidden City in Beijing and its Nine Dragon Wall. Traditionally only dragons painted for the emperor or high nobility had five talons. The dragon is also pictured here with the pearl of wisdom, which relates to a tale as old as time in Chinese Folklore.
This series of 12 original prints is the latest in Chris Chun’s ongoing Chinese Zodiac Collection. It is inspired by various handicraft techniques of China, particularly the well-known Chinese blue and white ceramics (qinghua), which defines the elegant colour palette used here. Each zodiac animal is imbued with layers of meaning and hidden detail, combining traditional Asian symbolism with contemporary Western sensibilities to bring good fortune, health and happiness to viewers.
This print makes a gorgeous and unique gift idea for those born this year and in other sheep years - 1931, 1943, 1955, 1967, 1979, 1991, 2003, 2015.
