A truly unique deck, with beautiful watercolors that are accented with gold. Penetrate the ageless wisdom of China through the keys of the I-Ching. In this deck, artist Klaus Holitzka has tried to capture the spirit of the I Ching using the style of classical Chinese water color paintings. The I Ching is an ancient Chinese oracle based on 64 hexagrams of 6 lines each. The meaning of each hexagram is drawn from the unique configuration of its lines. Each card shows one hexagram, an illustrative drawing, and the card's number in a red rectangle. A red circle also appears in every card. There are no titles although keywords are given in the instruction booklet. This booklet provides fairly detailed interpretations and suggestions. Traditionally, the I Ching is consulted by using coins or yarrow stalks. With this deck, you draw two cards and compare them. Your guidance is a combination of the general sense of the two cards plus the specific meanings of the lines in the first card that do not match those in the second.
