Synopsis: Gain an appreciation of Chinese art and architecture through understanding the symbols which are pervasive throughout it. The Ying/Yang, dragon, phoenix, five elements, and other symbols are explained in their historical and cultural context. Originally published in 1941, this is the standard reference book, with over 400 illustrations to help clarify and define this ancient, complex culture.

From the Publisher: The Eight Immortals, the five elements, the dragon, phoenix, yin and yang -- representatives of these important cultural symbols are pervasive in Chinese art and architecture. Without an understanding of their significance, Asian art cannot be fully appreciated. Originally published in Shanghai in 1941, this is the standard reference for students of China and Chinese culture. With over 400 illustrations, it not only explains the essential cultural symbols but also contains articles on Chinese beliefs, customs, arts and crafts, foods, agriculture and medicine. This is an indispensable guide to the Middle Kingdom's artistic and architectural wonders.
