Do we start from the top right and go down?
That's awesome! I've always wondered how to write the animals out
the kanji is really cute here
actually, this isnt the chinese animal zodiac, these are the 地支 assigned to each animal in some fengshui theory. The japanese zodiac is also the chinese one, except that monkey and dog are 猴 and 狗 respectively.
Surprised how different it is to the Japanese version. Lovely calligraphy.
For my zodiac Dog is pronounced GOU in Chinese, isn't it?
