Year of The Goat
Happy Year of the Goat! The year starts on Chinese New Year's Day, February 19, 2015. Here is my grass calligraphy for the Chinese character Goat. Chinese writing dates back to over 5000 years ago. Chinese characters evolved from pictographs to more abstract ideograms to the modern-day character, which bears a slight resemblance to its pictographic origins. The characters are divided into 3 main categories : pictographs , ideograms , phonograms. "Goat" 羊 is a pictograph. The original oracle bone script is a rough drawing of the animal. Here is my interpretation of the goat's head. You can see the horns, ears and beard. 2015 is the Year of the Goat. People born in the following years belong to this Chinese zodiac: 1907 13 Feb 1907 - 01 Feb 1908 (Fire) 1919 01 Feb 1919 - 19 Feb 1920 (Earth) 1931 17 Feb 1931 - 05 Feb 1932 (Metal) 1943 05 Feb 1943 - 24 Jan 1944 (Water) 1955 24 Jan 1955 - 11 Feb 1956 (Wood) 1967 09 Feb 1967 - 29 Jan 1968 (Fire) 1979 28 Jan 1979 - 15 Feb 1980 (Earth) 1991 15 Feb 1991 - 03 Feb 1992 (Metal) 2003 01 Feb 2003 - 21 Jan 2004 (Water) 2015 19 Feb 2015 - 07 Feb 2016 (Wood)
