‘MingBelle’ was initially created to commemorate 2021 Year of the Metal Ox. MingBelle’s coat is inspired by a porcelain plate from the Qianlong Period (1736-1795) and features hand-painted peonies and bamboo. The Ox and porcelain share many similar qualities. Not only do they play an important part in our everyday lives, but they are strong, hardworking and dependable, and used by many cultures around the world.
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 Ox years - 1925, 1937, 1949, 1961, 1973, 1985, 1997, 2009, 2021.
