Chinese Year of the Ox
Cleveland Public Art 2009

Year of the Ox (Ji Chou)
Chinese (Lunar Year) 4707

Legend has it that the Ox was one of twelve animals that answered Buddha's call and was rewarded by having one of the twelve cycles of the Chinese calendar as its own. Each of the animals given such an honor were also able to pass their traits and characteristics down to people born in their year.

Many Chinese do not refer to themselves by a number age (I am 75 or I am 15) but rather by the animal under whom they were born (I am an Ox or I am a Snake).

You can determine what Animal you were born under here.

Those born in the Year of the Ox (2009 and every 12 years back and every 12 years to come) are often described as hard-working, but obstinate; friendly and serious. They are not afraid of many things, and even if they were afraid their fear will never hold them back.

You won't get a lot of conversation from an Ox but they tend to make people around them feel secure. People born under the signs of Snake, Rooster and Rat are most compatible.

Do not cross an Ox; as friendly as they are, they do not like to be challenged. They are secure in their opinions and expect others to accept their expertise.

If you are looking for someone to fall for your get-rich-quick scheme, don't bother talking to an Ox. They are much too cautious to fall for a scam and believe in hard work, not luck.

Any career that involves details, organization and tenacity are ideal for an Ox.

The Year of the Ox public art project celebrates Clevelandís AsiaTown community, St. Clair Superiorís blossoming arts district & its thriving business community.

The St. Clair Superior Development Corporation installed 21 fiberglass oxen sculptures painted by Northeast Ohio artists & sponsored by dozens of local businesses throughout the St. Clair Superior neighborhood of Cleveland and in other key locations in & around downtown Cleveland.

You can find a location list to visit the ox art yourself.
