Balance in Design
Here's a 360° panorama of a Chinese style garden. At 320 K, it will take about 1 minute to download on a regular 56K modem.
While you're waiting, here's a little about the garden:
It was built in Sydney Australia, by the Chinese government as a gift. All the design elements and most of the ornaments are from China. Crooked bridges are common in Chinese gardens because it is believed evil spirits get confused while crossing them. Dragon and turtle shaped rocks peer out of the lake. Perspective is used to make large objects appear smaller and small ones large. This is a reflection of the Taoist idea of balance.
