Easy to see which Gua it is this time

Of course you guessed that this depicts fire. Sparks and sheaves brushing upward, spiral movement. I love fire. I wish we had a fireplace. -- In TCM it is associated with bitter taste, its color can also be black or deep red. The element embraces heart, circulation and the body warming system. It stands for enthusiasm and -- if overdone -- madness.

"heart" felt "enthusiasm" upon viewing this one Eva. I love the references you provide.

Ops, commented on the last one - where did it go??

Anyway,I love both of them! Your Niners look very contemporary and truly "made by Eva"... there are always flavor and hot spices in your work - love that!

Have a lovely Sun-day! :-)

When I look at it now, I find it very conventional. Wonder what will happen! After the more chaotic ones, it is time for a piece of solid craft.
