Tao (Sacred Symbols Series) by Thames and Hudson

Conceived by Chinese mystical philosophers of the 4th and 5th centuries B.C. as a way of understanding mans cooperation with the natural world, Taoism is neither formal religion nor structured philosophy. Its iconography, expressed in hundreds of years of Chinese art, is rich, ambiguous and symbolic. From the Great Ultimate of the interlocking Yin and Yang to the humblest plant, creature or mineral, everything is seen to symbolize the larger scheme of things - ebb and flow, movement and change. This unique guide presents and illustrates the quintessence of the imagery inspired by this infinitely sympathetic and accessible way of thinking.--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
