Description
 
The year 2015 is ruled by the Sheep. The creative Sheep personality embodies wealth, warmth and loveliness. Good things seem to come to the Sheep naturally because of its irresistibly good nature. The Sheep rarely speaks its mind. It will go with the flow and only object when things aren't going its way.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Simon Ng features an artistic rendering of a Bighorn sheep (Ovis canadensis canadensis) - a native of Canada's Rocky Mountains. The use of colour showcases the sheep's beautiful brown colouring. Nestled within the curl of the sheep's distinctive spiral horn, the Chinese character yang (meaning "sheep" or "goat") denotes the Year of the Sheep.
