Hi.

Welcome to Blogget, this is where I share snapshots of my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

The Zodiac

The Zodiac

Welcome to the Year of the (fire) Monkey. Today marks the beginning of the Chinese New Year - something I am embracing whole heartedly considering how much of a write off January was.

In the spirit of the day, I thought I would transport you back to early January, and to an exhibit of Ai Weiwei's Circle of Zodiac Heads that I went to in, you guessed it, Jackson Hole!

After having breakfast at Persphone's we headed out of town to the National Museum of Wildlife Art.

This red sandstone, castle like building which sits on the side of the valley looking out over an elk refuge, is a monument to the beauty of the wildlife art it displays.

It provided the perfect setting for the exhibit. The bronze of the Zodiac heads standing out against the pale, snow filled sky.

It was not so much a circle of Zodiac Heads but rather a line of them.

In case you were wondering, Tabitha and I were born in the year of the (fire) Rat.

My mum was born in the Year of the (wood) Dragon, something she is incredibly proud of.

Whilst my Dad has the fortune of being born in the Year of the (fire) Sheep.

An image which created a lot of laughter when we finally realised there are different elements asigned to each year of a Zodiac sign.

I hope you all have a prosperous and enjoyable Year of the fire Monkey

(The name alone, makes me think it's going to be a good one)
