Chinese New Year 2014 • Wood Horse
Most westerners often view the Chinese zodiac animals through our own worldview, which makes us recoil from the less pleasant animals and visualise the familiar, majestic animals more grandly, like the dragon, tiger, or horse. In 2014, it was the year of the Wood Horse. For me this brought to mind rocking horses (and the Trojan horse, but that's Greek) which led me to discover that there's rocking motorcycles too. I think our wooden horse here would take issue with the competition from a wheeled vehicle. She's not that sort of filly!
