In Chinese astrology, each person is associated with an animal sign. These signs represent what other people perceive you as being or how you present yourself to others.
The twelve animals of the Chinese zodiac (rat, ox, tiger, hare, dragon, serpent, horse, sheep, monkey, cock, dog, and pig) are well-known symbols associated with forecasting people's futures and determining their character. By the fourth century B.C., they were well established in Chinese thought; the earliest depictions appear in ceiling paintings from a tomb dated 533. During the Tang dynasty, pottery representations of these symbols were placed in tombs, reflecting the court's fascination with divination and astrology.
