Piece Together For Peace – 12 Chinese Zodiac Animals Formed With World Map


I'm really diggin' the versatility and meaning behind this project by Kentaro Nagai. In Japan, it is customary to send New Year's greeting cards with an animal sign of the zodiac for the upcoming year printed on them. In Chinese astrology, the twelve animal signs represents twelve different types of personalities. New Year's greeting cards are sent to people to show gratitude for things they've done for you through previous years and to wish for their happiness, safety, and health for the upcoming year. “We have chosen the zodiac and New Year's greeting card as a motif for this project with the hope that the whole world will be blessed with peace. Our theme, ‘Piece Together For Peace' means that ‘Peace' can be created by putting together ‘Piece' like a puzzle. This project was generated by an idea that the image of humanity united as one could be built by creating a figure combining ‘Nation Cooperation' and ‘Peace' with all continents and Islands of the world.” What's your sign?
