APA Zodiac: Earth Goat, Limited Edition Print
The APA Zodiac is a celebration of hybrid identities. There are 12 animal signs in the Chinese Zodiac and 5 elements that shape who we are. Each astrological animal is mapped with elements of North American landscapes, paying homage to the intricacies of heritage and who we are.
Inspired by stories and conversations with my mother about our family's history, our immigration and assimilation, and our future.
This is the Earth Goat + Montana mountain wildflowers.
July is the Month of the Earth Goat. People born in 1919 and 1979 (after the lunar new year) are Earth Goats.
The Earth Goat's image is based on the Mountain Goat, which lives in the northwestern region of North America. The Earth Goat's character is said to be kind-hearted, highly creative, family-centered, and loyal, with a strong sense of purpose and justice. I centered the Earth Goat's image on the wildflowers of Montana that can be found in places like Glacier National Park, a delicate biodiversity that depends both on our concerted efforts for conservation and also on human beings getting out of nature's way.
