Happy New Year 2014

I've had to explain this one more than expected - apparently awareness of millenia old zodiac symbols is not as prevalent as I had thought.  Anyway, 2013 was the year of the snake (specifically water snake) and 2014 is the year of the horse.  Composition is based around a Buddhist calligraphic circle, with the horse and snake joined, to show the connection of past and present.  The western biblical associations with the snake were impossible to resist, and so the snake appears to be "whispering" in the horses ear - the past seeding doubt into the future?  Or perhaps there is a more positive spin to that...
