LUNAR NEW YEAR
CELEBRATING THE YEAR OF THE OX
The ox teaches us that organisation and discipline are the key to achieving greatness. Take a leaf out of its book and write down your desire, hopes and messages of love and strength for the year ahead. Then fold your paper into the shape of the ox using the ancient Chinese art of zhezhi. As you place your paper ox into the lotus, visualise your wish coming true. But remember: what may seem like good luck is actually the result of old-fashioned hard work.
As Little Year and Spring Festival play out, our herd of zhezhi oxen and the messages of reflection, gratitude and hope they empower will invigorate and grow stronger.
A strong visual representation of our community’s united hopes for our future.
A celebration of resilience.
