Artwork description:

The Goat is one of the twelve animals in Chinese Zodiac series. I view Chinese zodiac system as a fragile man-made system that we shall believe only to a certain extent. The decision of using origami form is due to the association between origami and the zodiac system being both fragile and man-made.

Chinese Zodiac lines up the twelve animals in a particular sequence, with The Rat being the first and The Pig being the last. I decided to give each of the animal according to the sequence of rainbow color. Rat being the first is drawn in red; Ox being the second is made in orange, and I did the same until the sixth animal. Before I repeated the same color for the seventh to twelfth animal (with Horse being the seventh comes in red and Pig being the twelfth is in purple). Therefore, The Rat (1st) and The Horse (7th) are in red, The Ox and THE GOAT are in ORANGE, Tiger and The Monkey are in yellow, The Rabbit and The rooster are in green, The Dragon and Dog are in blue, and The Snake and The Pig are in purple.

The reason behind it, is because these animals are positioned directly opposite to each other in the Chinese Zodiac compass, and they are believed to be each other's most clashing or the least compatible zodiac.
