    About

    As early as the sixth century AD, it was customary in China to paste an image of a rooster on the door on the first day of the lunar New Year to protect one’s household. The rooster is associated with the sun; at cockcrow all the darkness of evil is thought to disappear. On the ground in this print is a branch of three citrons (sanyuan), a visual pun expressing hopes that a candidate would achieve top ranking (yuan) in all three (san) examination levels (sanyuan ). This would bring fame and wealth to his family. At the left is the chevron-shaped stone chime (qing), a homophone for ‘celebrate’ (qing). This is the right- hand print of a pair. Its counterpart is a mirror image bearing different characters. The characters on this print read ‘new spring,’ the equivalent of ‘New Year’; those on the accompanying print read ‘great luck’ (daji). Dagongji is the pronunciation of the characters for ‘large rooster’. The combined meaning is ‘good luck in the New Year’. The characters at the left margin are the name of the print shop that produced this image.
