Chris’s Snake is derived from the decorative handicrafts of Chinese knotting. One major characteristic of decorative knot-work is that all the knots are tied using just one piece of thread. This distinguishing feature gave Chris the idea of turning the thread into a snake, echoing the variety of shapes and complexity of the different knots.
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 Snake years - 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, 2025.
