The Classic of Mountains and Seas .part 1




I recently discovered a book called ShanHai Jing (The Classic of Mountains and Seas) is a Chinese classic text that is at least 2,000 years old. It is largely a fabled geographical and cultural account of pre-Qin China as well as a collection of mythology. The Classic narrates episodes of 204 mythical figures, notably the gods Foremost, Fond Care, and Yellow, and goddesses like the fearsome Queen Mother of the West and the doomed Girl Lovely, the nurturing solar and lunar goddesses, and many others unknown outside this text. Here are the three of the ancient Chinese mythical creatures I did for fun. maybe I'll continue to do some more.

P.S. Have you ever had anyone mention they had problems adding your blog to an RSS feeder?

Just curious because when I do, it shows yout newest post as July 2007.

Maybe it's my weird Google reader.
