Yin Yang Guardian by Ironshod Yin Yang Guardian by Ironshod
This is a new design style image I have painted called "Yin Yang Guardian", based around an oriental style dragon and the Yin Yang symbol.

Many thanks to Angel Shi for providing the Chinese translation and suggesting what text to use. Chinese characters look great and the meaning is really interesting. The ones uses here are the first sentence of a poem in the first chapter of Book of Changes(YI JING). This is a historical book considered as a foundation for all the Chinese fortune telling and FengSui. The sentences mean "Yinyang generates Taiqi". Yin and Yang are the black and white, live and death, fire and water etc, basically two opposite sides of everything. Taiqi, is the round black and white logo, and here represents everything.
