My clipped finger- & toe-nails are being collected and bottled during the course of a year in the Chinese Lunar Calendar.
To be completed as a 12-year project corresponding to the 12 zodiac animals in the Chinese calendar's cycle, beginning with the year of the Tiger in 2010, followed by Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Sheep, Monkey, Rooster, Dog, Pig, Rat, and Ox.
