This is a 13” x 19” print depicting illustrations on traditional Chinese pulse diagnosis, as originally illustrated by Zhang Shixian for the Jiao Zheng Tu Zhu Mai Jue during the Ming Dynasty (1368 to 1644 CE). The clinical definitions of pulse qualities were taken from the 4th Edition of the H.B. Kim Handbook.

  • First column: slow, hidden, soggy, weak
  • Second column: faint, sunken, moderate, rough
  • Third column: wiry, tight, surging, thready
  • Fourth column: floating, scallion stalk, slippery, excess


The size is 13" wide x 19" high.


Museum quality inkjet print on archival 300gsm weight unbleached cotton paper.
