CNY Great Race of the Zodiac Throw Pillow (18 x 18)
Sri Emas student, Levana created this beautiful piece of artwork after being inspired by the "Great Race Story of the Zodiac".
This is the most widespread Chinese zodiac legend. The Jade Emperor (The Emperor in Heaven in Chinese folklore) ordered that animals would be designated as calendar signs and the twelve that arrived first would be selected. On that day, the rat got up very early and rushed to the gathering site. On the way, he encountered the ox that ran much faster.
In order not to fall behind, he thought up a good idea. He made the straightforward ox carry him on condition that he sang for the ox. At last, the ox and rat arrived first. The ox was happy thinking that he would be the first sign of the 12, but the rat had already slid in front, and became the first lucky animal of the Chinese zodiac.
