Qilin is a mythical Chinese chimerical creature, often taking the form of a giraffe. This creature is considered to be a good omen and appears in conjunction with the arrival of a sage. This piece was created to commemorate the ceremony in Qufu, China in 2009 in which the female descendants of Confucius were recognized for the first time in the lineage chart of the Chinese sage’s family, an act that included more than 200,000 women.
