New Year’s Greetings 2021

2020works_towardhappiness
New Year's card for 2021 is based on the Japanese proverb which is related to ox, as it's the year of the ox this year.
"When a greedy old woman was drying a cloth, a bull caught the cloth with his horn and took it away. 
The woman chased the bull and arrived at a temple where she had never been. 
This event subsequently made her religious."
 This is the story which led to the Japanese proverb "a visit to Zenkoji Temple, guided by a bull." meaning that an unexpected thing like an invitation by someone brings a good result. May something good happens in 2021.

2021年、丑年が始まりました。「牛に引かれて善光寺参り」のように、思ってもみなかったことが、何か良い結果をもたらすことがある。新しい年、そんなことがあれば嬉しいと、牛を題材にした絵を彫りました。
