"This Little Piggy", Kari Serrao, encaustic, 2017

A New Year is almost upon us!

The Pig is the last of the twelve signs in the Chinese Zodiac. According to one myth, the Pig ended up in this position because he overslept and as such was late to the Jade Emperor’s party. Despite his tardiness or maybe in light of it, those born under the sign of the Pig are said to be hard working and energetic, they are social butterflies who enjoy life, and if given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. In 2019, the element associated with the Pig is Earth. Lucky colours are yellow, grey, brown and gold; lucky numbers are 2, 5, 8, and love is said to come from the north…
