Chinese Zodiac (Revisited)

For this Chinese New Year (January 23rd, 2012), I was invited to participate in "New Moon", a Chinese Zodiac themed group show hosted by the New York based gallery Myplasticheart.
For this show artists were invited to create works inspired by the 12 astrological animals featured in the mythology. I choose focus on my understanding and interpretation of "The Great Race", and how the Ox lost the race to the Rat. 
I would also go so far as to say that reason why I keep returning to this story is because I was born into the year of the Ox and this idea of loss befall the Ox suits my narrative style.
