National Museum of China: Red bracelet with a rhino motif
As 2021 is a Year of the Ox in the Chinese lunar calendar, the National Museum of China launched many new creative and cultural products with the element of an ox (niu). The most popular among them is a red bracelet with a rhino design (in Chinese a rhino, or xiniu, shares the same character with that of the ox, and is thus included in the zodiac motif spectrum). It was based on an item in the museum’s collection, a bronze rhinoceros zun vessel, and the rhino expresses the hope that lovers and couples will maintain perfect mutual understanding. What a lucky gift for your girlfriend or boyfriend!
