For good feng shui and to attract positive energy, we can’t think of a better mascot for 2021 Year of the Ox.
Introducing MingBelle, the latest Chinese Zodiac painting by Artist Chris Chun to commemorate 2021 Year of the Ox. MingBelle’s coat was inspired by a porcelain plate from the Qianlong Period (1735-1795) and features handpainted 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; used by many cultures around the world.
‘After 2020 where the whole world was ‘turned upside down’, Chris wanted to create something symbolic that is dependable and comforting. The Ox year is a time for honesty, discipline, and integrity of character. When people look at MingBelle, it will hopefully remind them of this and to keep moving forward’ says Chris.
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.
