‘The fur of the Sheep is soft and fluffy, almost cloud-like. Which is why I have illustrated this animal in Chinese clouds,’ says Chris. The cloud is a popular motif in Chinese culture and, when repeated in an undulating pattern, symbolises never-ending fortune for its owner. In the Chinese language, clouds are called yun (云; 雲; yún), which is a homonym for the Chinese character yun "good fortune" (运; 運; yùn).
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.
