Design Concept:

This is the exclusive design for Bank of the West in the Year of the Ox.

This crystal glass figure here, titled “Horned Fortune,” is an artwork of one of the most plain, yet underestimated zodiac signs of the Chinese astrology calendar. Despite sometimes being tardy in action, the ox is industrious, cautious and diligent. The hard-working ox is respected in agriculture all around Asia, prized for its honesty and down-to-earth personality. Adorable and almost comical, the zodiac is adorned with traditional Chinese paper-cutting artwork patterns. Each art piece is uniquely handcrafted, varying most with color and playing with light on any tabletop. Well suited for birthday occasions or simply celebrating someone’s birth year, the message the zodiac artwork sends is as sincere and as transparent as the glasswork itself.

Horned Fortune

Head raised in pride, vivacity in spades,
I emerge from the warm spring earth,
Grounded and steady.
Who puts their faith in Jack and the Beanstalk?
I say the earth gives me strength.
Always believe
In your ingenious horned fortune.
