Yin Yang - TAI CHI Mosaic

Originally, Yin and Yang are the 2 faces of a hill over which the Sun shines. The side in the shadow is YIN, the side in the light is YANG.

Yin and Yang are the two sides of the TAI CHI coin. Those two faces are opposite, and at the same time one cannot exist without the other. So when one sees the tail of the coin and cannot see the head, remember, the head is right here, below, always…
  • This is the first principle of Yin and Yang : one cannot exist without the other.
  • The second principle : within Yang exists Yin, and within Yin exists Yang.
  • The third principle : Yin and Yang (opposites) generate each other: Yin produces Yang, and Yang produces Yin. When Yang becomes very Yang, it turns to Yin; when Yin becomes very Yin, it turns into Yang : The Night is always darker right before dawn.

These 3 principles are represented by the Tai Chi Symbol – when the Yin (dark) is the biggest, Yang is being born, and vice-versa. The white dot in the centre of the Dark part is here to remind us of this.

The Golden Tai Chi Mosaic is a simple and powerful composition. This classic Tai Chi measures 18 x 18" (45 x 45 cm). It is made of 3 stones only :  Beige Travertine, Gold Travertine and Black Granite.
