Tao of Geometry II

I was asked to do another Tao piece and this is the result. The ancient Chinese calligraphy is taken from the Tao Te Ching. Chapter 42 The Tao gave birth to One. The One gave birth to Two. The Two gave birth to Three. The Three gave birth to all of creation. All things carry Yin yet embrace Yang. They blend their life breaths in order to produce harmony. People despise being orphaned, widowed and poor. But the noble ones take these as their titles. In losing, much is gained, and in gaining, much is lost. What others teach I too will teach: "The strong and violent will not die a natural death."
