Artist's Description

The horse (ma 马) is one of the twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac and symbolizes speed, power and perseverance.

The horse is usually depicted as the bearer of good things.

For example, a galloping horse with several scrolls (the Yellow River Diagrams) tied on its back represents the bringing of the origins of Chinese culture to the legendary Chinese leader Fuxi.

The horse can be a symbol for the Mongols (Yuan Dynasty) because their culture is strongly associated with the horse.

There are many myths about the horse or horses, or horse-like beings, including the pony.

There are various motifs of horses in Chinese mythology. In some cases the focus is on a horse or horses as the protagonist of the action, in other cases they appear in a supporting role, sometimes as the locomotive power propelling a chariot and its occupant(s).
