Chinese Zodiac Animal Signs

We carry a lot of animal carvings and I find people love to collect certain animals.  Sometimes they have fond memories of that animal (a horse rider, or a beloved dog), sometimes they dream of seeing the majestic animals, and sometimes they like the symbology of that animal. 

Many Native American tribes, most notably the Zunis, carved animal fetishes that represent the spirit of that animal and are believed to invoke the wisdom and protection of that animal for the owner.

The Chinese Zodiac consists of a 12 year cycle, each year is named after a different animal that imparts distinct characteristics to that year. Many Chinese believe that the year of a person's birth is the primary factor in determining that person's personality traits, physical and mental attributes and degree of success and happiness throughout his or her lifetime.

To learn about your Chinese Zodiac Animal sign find the year of your birth below.
