They're zodiac animals, and there's a history about why AiWeiWei is interested in them.

Fascinating! What a treat for the countries they are touring, given the history of the originals. We have a significant Chinese population here in Australia, but we seem to know very little about their culture, despite China sending fabulous exhibits over here to prominent art shows over on the East coast. There is very little media coverage so its articles like this that give glimpses into modern and ancient China.

Interesting! It seems to me that I've seen pictures of these somewhere else, but can't remember where.
