Out of the twelve animals of the Chinese Zodiac, the horse is seen as the ‘special one’, because of the symbolism it carries and its association with speed, strength, loyalty, perseverance and freedom. For centuries, the horse has been indispensable to man, as a partner in war, and a means of transportation in times of peace.
Feng Shui Horses may often be found depicted in paintings or art within Asian households and are often classified under two categories; the Tribute Horse, and the Victory Horse.
Traditionally, the Tribute Horse was a symbol of redemption and of being financially well-off. It was often given as a lavish gift to people in positions of great power such as Emperors. In modern times, the tribute horse is seen to overcome evil intentions and encourage recognition and reward.
The Victory Horse is traditionally portrayed galloping. This symbolizes upward mobility or career promotion. Flowers or birds are often depicted at the horse’s hooves, showing beauty and speed. This represents accelerated achievement, freedom and fame.
