That’s an interesting observation. I have a book on my shelves on Chinese civilization. Bought it 30 years ago. I will read it in the next 30 years. Promise. 🙂

got the message instantly since it was a clear bright transmission!! 🙂

and also Chinese art doesn’t focus on that many subjects. It’s usually mountains, koi and flowers.

I saw Bulan penuh last night. It was a cold and clear night. A very beautiful Bulan. Crystal clear. Took advantage to send you a Bulan mail. Hope you got it. 🙂

Many human cultures do. But (from a distant point of view) it seems that chinese graphics do feature a lot of nature. Maye because of the simple beauty of flowers? Who knows.

good point. I just take it for granted that it is an important part of the Chinese culture to feature nature but I don’t know why.

Quite lovely. You just made me wonder whether flowers are so important in Chinese culture(s)? Graphically I mean? (Just an impression, I am so ignorant in that respect that I feel a bit ashamed).
