1972 to 1973 The Diary


Similar to The Collection of Phrases, The Diary consists of many more different pictographs that has been diligently collected for each Chinese character. This time, only a brief explanation of the character was recorded in The Diary. There are a total of 81 characters, divided into 3 groupings of “sky, on earth and of human”, i.e. ‘tian’, ‘di’, ‘ren’. Apparently, Huang Yao prepared this ‘Diary’ as further research before for he began painting wenzi hua.

These works were found in a commercially printed diary of the year 1972, hence nicknamed The Diary. A list of the characters and an example of a page is given below. The Diary was likely worked on between 1972 -1973.
