Happy Chinese New year to everyone!!!

So, today’s post is about OXEN and art. Cattle/oxen are well regarded in many cultures- even godlike in the Hindu culture.

This year is the Chinese Calender year of the ox. Whether you think about the wild west, herding cattle, to cattle in any anchient or modern culture, they have a close association with man.


Here is a cave painting of some oxen. Thats got to be old.

So you can see they have a long history of being associated with art!


this is the kind of painting you are likely to see in a gallery.
