Be peaceful when looking to these 2 dragons of yin and yang, evolving in a zen garden.
The dragons are flying above their garden, in a perfect equilibrium, only retained by few strings.
Around them, the 5 chinese elements complete the synergy.
A video of the flying dragons, with the bricks I have:
This little garden contains:
- 1 tray
- 2 dragons (yin & yang)
- 3 hidden golden eggs placed in a nest (life steps: baby, adult,
- 5 elements (water, wood, fire, earth, metal)
= 11 pieces
The 4 parts are the first prime numbers (1, 2, 3, 5), that compose a new prime number (1 + 2 + 3 + 5 = 11).
Hidden in the garden are other pieces that represent these numbers.
The dragons are maintained using the tensegrity principle with two steps:
- between the dragons,
- with the tray.
And to complete the style of a zen garden, a rake is added in decoration.
For festivals, as the spring festival (new year festival) or yuanxiao festival (lantern festival), the garden can be decorated with lanterns and red clothes.
The tray has a size of 30x46x35 cm (width * length * height). It contains 2 racks on each side, to put the rake or pieces you want hide while a time (as the lanterns).
The dragons are fully identical, except for their color and the links to the strings. Only the head, the paws and the tail can be moved with ball joint to participate and change the equilibrium.
(Spoiler) The three eggs are hidden in the mountain of earth, in a nest.
The 5 chinese elements are placed to represent the energies of the chinese wuxing principle (that represents the interaction between elements: water, wood, fire, earth and metal)
