I-Ching Art Note Card - Tai - Great Happiness

These cards are inspired by an ancient Chinese I-Ching, aka "the Book of Changes." I- Ching has been regarded as a compendium of ancient cosmic principles as well as divination text in China for thousands of years. It is a philosophical concept centering on the ideas of balance through opposites and acceptance of changes in life.

 

In I-Ching, there are 64 hexagrams (each contains a set of six broken and solid lines represent "yin" and "yang") with corresponding Chinese characters. I have selected some characters that are most positive and meaningful. Using an ancient style of Chinese calligraphy, the seal script, "zhuan shu," to write these characters, then combined with my original art work, I have created these unique and inspirational note cards that can certainly cheer and encourage someone special in your life.

 

Inside this card, you can find the hexagram symbol of "qua" associated with the character on the front of the card, along with the text that explain its meaning. It reads as follows:

 

This character is from an ancient Chinese analytical philosophy, I-Ching, also know as "the book of Changes." Each of 64 hexagrams is interpreted specific meanings in life. Tai is the middle ground when the balance between Yin and Yang energy achieved and good fortune started to flow. It is a celebrating time to rise above all problems and yield great success, happiness and peace.
