to legend, the Chinese Lunar Calendar dates back to 2637 B.C.E. One
fable has it that the Lord buddha summoned all animals to come to him
before he entered Nirvana. Only twelve of the animals came, so he
honored them each with a year. According to Chinese myth, the animal
ruling the year in which you were born has a profound influence on your
life. It is known as being, "The animal that hides in your heart."
pendants are made from lead-free pewter. The necklace cord is long
enough to fit around an adult neck. They are made in the USA. These
