For many centuries the Chinese people have decorated their homes during the Chinese New Year (CNY) with brightly-coloured pictures printed on paper by woodblock painting. I have published 2 pages on nianhua about religious pictures and symbols of good luck. Please have a look. May I wish you a happy and prosperous Year of the Sheep!
Because of non-aggressive and docile nature, sheep and goats were the first animals that humans domesticated.
Characteristics of people born in the Year of the Sheep/Goat are usually kind, gentle and sociable. They have a special fondness for quiet living. They are wise, compassionate and highly caring for others.
