I Ching, Yijing or Zhou Yi

  Yi Jing, Oracle of the Sun


Images, imagination.

  The origin of the dragon and why he is the bringer of rain.

  About the axis of the world, the Dao, the Supreme One and the Pole Star.

  Ever wondered why Yi talks to and about men and seldom to or about women?

  Characters are images, like landscape paintings. They always have many meanings. No translation can include all those meanings. At left guan (name of hex.20) in modern fullform sript, and next to it guan on oracle bones, dating more than 1000 years BC. The era of the first known script in China.

  Uitbeeldingen van de hexagrammen.
 Beelden spreken meer dan woorden, vooral omdat de Chinese karakters ook beelden zijn.

  Images of the hexagrams.
 Images say more than words, especially because Chinese characters are images.

 "I decided that I needed to create my own version of what I Ching means to me. I Ching Meditations is expressed in imagery and words. So this is a Western Woman’s perspective..."
