Zen Treasures- Year of the Horse
2014 is the Year of the Horse in the Chinese Zodiac and to honor that Ming’s Zen Gallery is kicking off our new Zen Treasure feature with all things equine! And we are not limiting it to just Chinese artifacts either. All horse depictions in our store are at least 10% off from Monday August 25th till Sunday August 31st!
Hoses carry a lot of symbolism in Asia and are the subject of many forms of art. In China the horse is a symbol of economic growth and prosperity. Depictions of horses are often placed in or around finance buildings and government offices.
The Japanese hold horses, particularly white ones, to be a symbol of divine authority and military leaders are pictured mounted on great white horses.
One of the most interesting stories comes from Tibet. There they believed horses to be mighty spiritual communicators. Horses carried prayers up to the heavens and brought back blessings from the gods.
So whether you are looking for a little financial oomph, or to be influential and authoritive, having an equine symbol in your home to carry your hopes to the skies is never a bad idea. So come check out the unique and beautiful Horse items we have featured this week! And keep an eye on Ming’s Twitter and Facebook pages for more pictures and special offers all week long!
