"Spring Zephyr" (春风和煦)
"Spring Zephyr" by island6 Art Collective (Liu Dao)
// BLURB //
Greek god of the west wind Zephyrus blows his sweet breath across the land creating a soft gentle breeze. Vivid butterflies do their sparkling dance, bringing with them the promise of spring and shine. In Chinese thought, spring is associated with growth, wind, patience, and altruism. In fact, there is a Chinese system known as “wuxing” (五行) or the five phases, that is used to explain a variety of phenomena, for example the seasons. Spring is a period of growth and movement, summer is a period of blooming, late summer is associated with stability, autumn is a period of harvesting, and winter is a period of rest and stillness. Those who are watchful and vigilant will soon realize these five elements cycle in and around everything. Which is why this philosophy is so engrained in Chinese culture. Think about it, all things sprout and grow and eventually wither away. The wuxing are thought to be cosmic agents which describe the transformations of nature and are widely used in Chinese philosophy, as well as disparate fields like astrology, martial arts, and even the art of catching butterflies! Spring is the easiest of seasons, just watch our winged friends ride the winds nonchalantly and without resistance. Remember spring is just the beginning!
