Canadian artist Simon Ng has created a stylized depiction of a Dog standing above a traditional Chinese latticework that incorporates a rose, one of the Dog’s lucky flowers. A rose also appears on the Dog’s chest, while oncidium and cymbidium orchids, the Dog’s other floral charms, fill the remainder of its silhouette. The Chinese character for Dog appears to the right. Beautiful engraving captures the energy of the loyal Dog personality that is always poised and ready to play—or protect.
