The Chinese New Year has twelve animals; snake, rabbit, goat, horse, dog, ox, dragon, monkey, rat, tiger, pig, rooster. It also has five elements; fire, water, wood, earth, metal. I placed them all at random, on pieces that seemed to "fit".

Overall (it's about 12 inches by 8 inches) puzzle:

I really like that your theme ties everything together so well. The styles of the pieces are very different but you made it work beautifully. It also looks well executed.

How do you plan to display it?
