Goat or Sheep (Ram)
The lamb represents filial respect; it kneels respectfully when taking its mother’s milk. The goat is also called the hill-sheep and it is a very popular animal in China.
The Chinese sign-symbol of a sheep is like a conventional picture of a ram with horns, feet and tail. There is a great deal of similarity between the sheep and the goat. Both represent abundance carrying stalks of grain in their mouth presenting them to the people: “May famine and death never visit your markets.”
