In Chinese culture, the horse symbolizes speed, power and perseverance and is usually depicted as the bearer of good things. For example, a galloping horse with several scrolls (the Yellow River Diagrams) tied on its back represents the bringing of the origins of Chinese culture to the legendary Chinese leader Fuxi. In Feng Shui meaning, horse is used to symbolize movement and power. Horse painting is famous in Chinese fine artwork. A horse painting can be placed near an executive’s desk to reinforce his image as a dynamic and powerful man, but it should not be headed toward the window or door. A painting with Horses in full gallop represents the speedy arrival of your good fortune. Horse paintings contain the Yang energy and element of Fire.
