 5th Element: Living Meridian Location Chart - TCM  (View larger image)

Based on the same work that produced Living Meridian Location Chart: Combined TCM & Zen Shiatsu, these wall charts uniquely depicts photographs of an actual patient on whom a team of trained and experienced practitioners worked for over 26 hours to find and mark the points and meridians of TCM. Each point was located by cun/sun measurement and anatomical position and verified by touch and response from the trained model. Because the work was done directly on a real 190cm tall African-Caucasian body the relative positions of points and meridians can be directly inferred, avoiding the errors of interpretation that artists impressions may make. The photography uses lighting that accentuates the detail of the line work with respect to the surface anatomy and delicately portrays the contours of bone and muscle, so essential for accurate point location. In each image one side of the model is in anatomical pose, the other holds a modified stance to allow presentation of points such as HT1, KI1, LR12. In many cases the pose also allows the meridians to be followed from beginning to end in one view. Digital editing was used to correct and colourise the line work and in this set of two 700 x 1000mm charts (yin aspect and yang aspect) has been labelled according to WHO nomenclature. The precise colouring system conforms to classical five element theory. The chart also shows the Shu/Phase, Yuan-Source, Back-Shu, Front-Mu, Xi-Cleft and Luo-Connecting points. Detailed legends on the side panels provide additional information. With its careful attention to accuracy, detail and beauty of presentation this chart certainly justifies its place as teaching aid, study tool or decoration.

Full colour, each chart measures 700 x 1000mm (rolled), A4 instruction sheet
