There are many more featured in this book, however, not only from China, but also from Japan and other regions around the world.

Auspicious Animals showcases illustrated artworks, along with sculptures and applied arts, that represent good omens. The collection, totaling around 240 pieces, is accompanied by rich, enjoyable and approachable text. This gorgeous edition featires metallic gold lamination on the cover and makes a great gift or reference for any art lover.
