Here's a 3d rotating image* of the Chinese
Chinese symbols meaning in English can be complicated.
For example, an explanation of the chinese symbols
meaning is given by renowned Psychologist, Carl Jung: "The character
of tao in its original form consists of a head, which probably
must be interpreted as beginning, and then the character
for going in its dual form in which it also means track,
and underneath, the character for standing still, which
is omitted in the later way of writing.
*for those curious about its creation... I sketched the character in 2d, scanned it into a software package, extruded and skinned it in gold. To give it the apparent motion I took 36 pictures of it while changing a virtual camera in increments of 10 degrees.
