The linocut print shows the Pig (or Boar) and its Chinese character. It is in black water-based ink on Japanese kozo paper (6 inches by 9 inches or 15.5 cm by 22.8 cm).

The twelfth creature in the Chinese Zodiac is the pig (or boar), denoted by the character 'Zhu'. The year of the pig has and will occur from:
* 30 January 1911 - 17 February 1912: Metal Pig
* 16 February 1923 - 4 February 1924: Water Pig
* 4 February 1935 - 23 January 1936: Wood Pig
* 22 January 1947 - 9 February 1948: Fire Pig
* 8 February 1959 - 27 January 1960: Earth Pig
* 27 January 1971 - 14 February 1972: Metal Pig
* 13 February 1983 - 1 February 1984: Water Pig
* 31 January 1995 - 18 February 1996: Wood Pig
* 18 February 2007 - 6 February 2008: Fire Pig
* 5 February 2019 - 24 January 2020: Earth Pig
* 2031 - 2032: Metal Pig
* 2043 - 2044: Water Pig
This print would make a lovely gift for lovers of pigs or those born in the Year of the Pig. Pigs are wonderfully clever and thoughtful animals (undeserving of their spotty reputation in the West). Those born under the sign of the pig are supposed to be straightforward and patient people.

If you would prefer a more fearsome animal to celebrate the Year of the Pig, check out the boar linocut:
