A new gallery in Europeana to celebrate the year of the ox!
If it wasn’t for the cunning rat, the ox would have won the race in the Chinese fable of the Great Race, which pitted all of the animals of the zodiac against each other. Oxen have been used for transport and agriculture by humans since 4000 BCE.
Visit the gallery on Europeana.eu!
