  Seven Horses

 

China

In feng shui, the horse is considered auspicious and is associated with success and fame, and two horses together stand for a strong partnership in business or marriage.

 

In the Hall of Seven Horses at the Qin Mausoleum Site Museum in Xi'an, there are seven horses that symbolize the unification of China under its first Emperor Qin Shi Huang Ti (fig.), whom unified his kingdom with 6 others, each embodied by a horse.
