About the Artwork :
Year of the Earth Pig. People born in 1959 and 2019 are from the Earth Pig sign. The cycle is 60 years long. The pig/boar is a sign of good luck and wealth.
Background story: Little pig is running to not be late at the Jade emperor's (first God/primordial entity) meeting ! In fact, he got hungry on the way and took a nap after eating, so when he woke up, he ran as fast as his legs could carry him only to realize all others were already there. This is the reason why he is the last of the 12 signs. The flourishing nature (Earth) around the pig represents the abundance and good fortune this sign is known for
