Instructions for Posting a Signs of Zodiac Waymark:
PROOF:
Pay attention! We are NOT looking for every Lion, Bull, Fish, Monkey or Rat.
There must be some proof that it is a Sign of Zodiac representation. Most times the Signs of Zodiac are presented all together. This would be a valid proof. Single representations are rare. But if they can be proofed in some way, they can be included as well.

SINGLE vs. COMBINED WAYMARK:
If there is more than one Sign of Zodiac at the same site, only one combined waymark for all of them is allowed.
A single waymark for every single sign is NOT allowed.

You have to post at least two pictures of the Signs of Zodiac. One close-up and one more general view. More pictures are always welcome! If there is an information board, please post one picture of it, as well.

Please provide as many details about the Signs of Zodiac as possible. For example: size, materials, artist, year of creation.
