This drawing represents my studies of calligraphic art.
Both Asian shamanic calligraphy and California rock art
stylizations are reflected in the images above.
The references to tonal polarities, of course, indicates the
ideology of Yin and Yang found in Chinese calligraphy.
The author Lazlo Lageza, a Hungarian, wrote an interesting
book some time ago on Taoist and Confucian shamanic
drawings traditional in China: 'Tao Magic.'
