The Chinese Zodiac calendar is a 12-year cycle, where each year is associated with a different animal. Lunar New Year is a festive celebration that is part of the cultures of China, Korea, Vietnam, and several Asian countries. Each Lunar New Year is connected to one of the Zodiac animals, with 2021 as the Year of the Ox. Try your skills at spotting the Zodiac animals as depicted on artifacts from our collection, and explore more about all the animals, real and imaginary, in the Zodiac!
