Lladró is presenting this new version of "The Goat" from the Chinese Zodiac, a piece in which the white used in its decoration contrasts with the golden luster in the horns, the element which attracts all the attention. Similarly to other previous zodiac signs, the decoration of this piece is embellished with respect to the original goat. This piece has also been enhanced with the inclusion of flowers on the porcelain base. Also of note, the horns ornamentation work and the Goat's pose, which stands powerfully on a mound. The wooden base is included and attached to the piece, which is why the limited edition number is on the bottom of the base.
The Goat represents goodness, tenderness and family love in the Chinese Zodiac. It's considered as a very lucky sign and tradition tells that it's because Goat was the eighth animal to be called by Buddha and the number eight in some Asian countries is an auspicious one, symbolizing peace and prosperity. Acknowledging this fact, this edition comes, like previous pieces, in 1,888 units. Limited Edition of 1,888 - Chinese Zodiac 9.5 x 5 x 3.75"
