This is a beautifully simple print, showing the hexagrams of the I JING / I CHING / BOOK OF CHANGES in the order they traditionally appear in classical texts.
The I CHING (“Book of Changes”) is the oldest known oracle, or divination tool. There are 64 hexagrams total, each made up of two separate trigrams or BA GUA. Each hexagram is composed of 6 lines, the straight lines representing yang energy, and the broken lines yin energy. In classical Taoist divination practices, the user would ask a question, and then throw coins six times, each throw determining a line of the hexagram. They would then look up their hexagram in the I CHING and try and interpret the advice of the oracle regarding the subject of their question.
This print is 12” w x 18” h, and is a bronze foil stamp on light brown kraft paper. The bronze foil has a lovely pink hue when light shines on it.
Packed and sent protected by tissue paper and rolled into a poster tube.
Frame not included.
