Begin the race Picture

Piece 8 of 12 for the theme "Mythology".

In Chinese mythology, the Jade Emperor plans to host a feast where the first 12 animals will be given a place in the zodiac.

Although its placed 8th in my portfolio, this was the first of my concentration pieces and a favourite. The idea was to show a section of the race fragmented by time; for example the first panel shows the beginning of the race, the second shows the that stretch of the road a few seconds later. As for why the dragon appears in the last four panels, it represents the dragon's immortality 'stretching across time'.
