English Calligraphy by Jerry Jo Idarius
Water overcoming fire is represented on the cover by the two colors. Water belongs to winter and the north; fire to summer and the south. In our bodies
water connects with the kidneys and has a relationship with salt, while fire is
related to the heart and is connected with bitter foods.
