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.The bottles for each zodiac animal are placed in a circle according to their positions of the twelve Earthly Branches in the ancient Chinese ordering system for time, date, directions, and astrological traditions, with the Rat at 0 degree North, Rabbit at 90 degree East, Horse at 180 degree South, and Rooster at 270 degree West.


The first three years: Tiger (2010-2011), Rabbit (2011-2012), Dragon (2012-2013)
