Episode 208 Pro – Shrines of the Living Land


In Episode 208 Pro – Shrines of the Living Land, we continue our exploration of space, place and sacred paradox by considering the religious symbolism and themes of Chinese landscape (shan-shui) painting. Taoist themes of immortality, wise innocence, active non-action and the harmony of the natural world find their expression in the wild mountainous landscapes of artists through the centuries. We delve into the history, symbols and methods of painting as an example of crafting sacred space through which wandering sages seek enlightenment.
