Let’s find the Honest Ox!

Try to find the Ox in Gallery 202 (the one with a bed and some furniture.) 

Yellow Ox, Chinese, Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Glazed stoneware, 31-143


This hardworking ox is taking a break.  Use your imagination and think about how this sculpture might feel if you could run our hand over it. What textures do you see and how might they feel? 

What are people born in the year of the Ox like?

The Ox is dependable, strong, and determined. An ox believes in hard work and doesn’t believe in taking shortcuts.
