Thank you, both, for your quick responses.
Yes, I am even more confused than ever. Here is some background from the people from whom I purchased this figure.
Three generation Chinese family. I was looking at their collection and I was surprised I recognized so many figures. When I asked what this was, the immediate response was, "sheep." There was no mention of Zodiac. When I asked how old it was, the response was, "old, not antique." A lot of broken English in this conversation.
So, here's a thought that came to mind.
Is it possible that the dragon character refers to the Dragon Year of the Zodiac? And since we agree it is not that old, that it could be the 1980's year of the Dragon?
I look forward to your thoughts.
