Qua Presents

Zodiac Collection

The Chinese way of measuring time includes using 10 Heavenly Stems ("天干" Tian Gan), and 12 Earthly Branches (地支 Di Zhi). The signs are used to designate the time period (時辰 Shi Chen, which are 2 hour intervals of our usual time), days, months and years. It is believed that our innate characters are defined by the years which we are born in, represented by the 12 zodiac animals — much like astrology signs. In this collection, Qua presents a series of red and black lacquerware with Chinese calligraphy characters that hide details of the animals; as well as a set of intricate and colourful metal trinkets.

The 12 zodiac animals are a big part of the Chinese culture. Besides the more commonly known 12-year cycle, we also use it in time-telling, in periods, days, months. In this collection, the Chinese characters of the animals hide some Easter eggs in plain sight. Find the respective animals' little details in the gold calligraphy artwork! Can you spot the tiger's tail and rabbit in the picture on the left?
