Animals of the Chinese Horoscope



horoszkop1

 What’s the common in the rat, the tiger, the monkey and the rooster?
They all are the part of the chinese horoscope. The Moro Antik Gallery’s exhibition was about the magnificient artworks related to the chinese horoscope’s twelve animals, as the gallery’s main interest is still the oriental art and we love animals too. Woodblock prints, statues, netsukes and lacquerwares just to name a few.
