The brainchild of designer Hardy Blechman, Maharishi has produced its award winning pacifist military designs since 1994.

In celebration of the Lunar New Year for 2021, Maharishi pays tribute to the second animal in the zodiac cycle – the ox.

The creature is depicted with an ox's head attached to a spider-like torso, with six legs and long singular claws.
