According to Chinese, sheep represents peace and compassion unlike the Westerners who think sheep are silly. The people of this sign are generally friendly, creative, easy going and they make good team workers.
The Sheep symbolizes comfort in Chinese Culture. Gentle, thoughtful, artistic, righteous and kindwould be the best words to define Sheep.
