Hexiang “Calling the Picture” 喝象

May 15, 2012

The map of Krakow old town shows the shape of the town is like a sacred turtle with its head located in the Wawel Royal Castle, drinking water from the Wisla River, the whole layout is like a Chinese Model of the Universe: Heaven is round and Earth is square symbolized by a turtle, drinking water is taking in wealth from the river, which the old town depended on for survival and prosperity.

Pingyao old town in Shanxi Province of China is also planned like a sacred turtle with its head taking in the prosperity from the south gate and the tail of the turtle is represented by the north gate and the four legs are the four gates to the east and west. We will visit Pingyao and stay there in a traditional courtyard hotel for 4 nights in the coming Feng Shui study tour of China in October.
