Zodiac Postcard – Tiger

A postcard featuring one the 12 zodiac animals of Japanese astrology.

£4 per item

This postcard is an original design from Shin Kōgei featuring one of the 12 zodiac animals, the ox. Japan follows a 12-year astrological cycle, where each year is represented by a different animal, whose attributes are sometimes said to be inherited by the individuals born in that particular year. The design resembles a woodblock print, where each of the colours is printed onto paper using individual woodblocks, a method in widespread use in Japanese popular culture during the Edo period (1603-1868 CE).
