The side view of the ox shows off the animal in all its glory. With his sketch style, the artist breaks up the familiar grid of a detailed drawing and gives the motif a ‘wild’ touch. The increasingly intense colour gradient shows the tonicity of the ox, which increases from the legs to the horns.
In line with its second position in the Chinese zodiac, the ox’s self-confident gaze is directed towards 2 o’clock.
The ox is very hard-working, reliable, ambitious and determined. Oxes are extremely honest and sincere. Oxes work tenaciously and with a lot of patience until they reach their goal. But first they have to draw up an exact plan.
