Yin and Yang

Balance is something that one must have in life. Balance guarantees harmony.

This concept is further exemplified in the Chinese philosophy of Yin and Yang. The dark side which is the Yin is directly opposite the Yang which is the light side. The coldness and gentleness of the Yin is equalized by the hotness and restlessness of the Yang. Their existence is a good example of the concept of united opposition. Yin and Yang do not act against each other. Instead, they exist to maintain the equilibrium. It is for this reason that they cannot exist without the other. Yin and Yang were made to complement each other.

The Taijitu is the popular symbol of the Yin and Yang. A lot of scholars have interpreted this famous Chinese symbol. In a layman’s point of view, the circle represents the way that one perceives things. The shape of the Yin and Yang inside the circle represents how their existence affects the circle or the way of perceiving things.

As one of the symbols of Chinese culture, dragons are also associated with the concept of Yin and Yang. It is an interpretation to help reinforce the concept of united opposition. In this particular dragon poster, Yin is represented by the black dragon. Yang, on the other hand, is represented by the white dragon. To emphasize their correlation, the two dragons are intertwined. They are tied with each other. The presence of the Taijitu at the center of the poster very much explains the entanglement of the dragons.

Lover of Chinese philosophy would definitely love to have this fine gift. The use of the dragons in the concept of the Yin and Yang illustrates the many aspects of Chinese culture. This poster could also be used as a good luck gift. Based on the Chinese culture, dragons are seen as good charms.
