In addition to beautifying the space, adding a cultural and artistic ambiance, and enhancing the quality of life, placing appropriate artwork in shops, workplaces, or residences can also boost the Feng Shui energy. Although there are numerous taboos, it is still a wise decision. But something you need to play attention.
There are numerous painting genres, and there are numerous details to consider. First and foremost, never hang a spooky-looking painting. Some people might believe that these unsettling paintings have a unique cultural and aesthetic atmosphere, but it is clear that the perception of horror can only produce a scary Feng Shui energy, which seriously harms the Feng Shui as a whole.
Additionally, if the painting’s color is excessively dark and dreary, it could easily evoke negative associations and is therefore inappropriate. On the other hand, it is obviously better to make people appear energizing and full of vigor if the painting itself choose brilliant and vibrant hues.
Even if it appears to be full of current art, an overly abstract artistic vision is too abstract and unreliable. It is inevitable that some people may associate something negatively because various people will have different impressions. As a result, hanging these artworks is a little risky, and I still advise everyone to use caution.
The four seasons’ weather has a different effect on spring growth, summer growth, autumn harvest, and winter storage, with spring and summer themes performing better overall. Themes relating to spring and summer are perfect since spring depicts everything coming back to life, flourishing, and full of energy, and summer indicates brightness, vigor, and vitality. On the other hand, you ought to exercise caution when using the topic of autumn and winter. Even though people often associate autumn with romance, the season actually embodies a spirit of dying. This is especially true with paintings that depict the season with crimson leaves covering every surface. Because of the falling leaves, these paintings have an artistic conception of decay and destruction; therefore, they should be hung with caution. Additionally, while paintings of winter with white snow flurries may also be incredibly attractive, the paintings’ vivid depictions of withering and destruction are not at all consistent with the idea of fostering Feng Shui.
Paintings about weather and other natural occurrences, such those depicting torrential rain, should also receive attention because they are prone to dark, gloomy, and depressing feelings. Another illustration would be paintings that depict lightning, a lot of snow, and dark clouds, all of which are comparable to the scenario described above. Pay attention to paintings that resemble tornadoes as well because they have a lot of destructive potential. Additionally, paintings depicting ferocious storms and waves should be avoided because they evoke a sense of panic.
Additionally, rocks have the connotation of obstruction, which will have an adverse effect on the formation of luck. If the boulder itself has sharp edges and corners, it is also more likely to produce harsh impacts and create negative energy.
It’s also important to pay attention to landscape paintings, particularly those that feature mountains. The Grand Canyon in the United States is an example of a rocky mountain that, in the general aesthetic conception, is not only not at all lush, but in some places is almost devoid of grass, which is incompatible with Toyama in the sense of Feng Shui. The Feng Shui proverb “Water mastering your wealth, Mountain mastering people (including population, quality, and health)” states this. Mountains can also serve as both our support and a strong indicator of the population’s quality, density, and general health. If it is Toyama’s, it will greatly increase fortune. In general, we will demand that the shape of the mountains be lovely, the greenery lush, and the mountains free of sharp cliffs and withered vegetation.
The two best mountain shapes, indicating prosperity and prosperity, are earth-shaped mountains (i.e., relatively flat peaks) and golden-shaped mountains (i.e., relatively rounded summits). The utilization of Yamagata as “Wenchang” Peak, which is advantageous for academic exams and career advancement, depends on how tall and attractive it is and if it is oriented properly. Under some conditions, a water-shaped mountain (that is, a collection of undulating peaks, almost like a wave) is also advantageous to wisdom and wisdom. Mountains in the form of fire, or those with steeper peaks, are less desirable since they are more likely to harbor savage and wicked spirits.
Mountains are “Yin” and won’t move on their own until there is an earthquake or a landslide. The movement is “Yang”, and Feng Shui emphasizes the balance of “Yin” and “Yang”. As a result, mountains are frequently referred to as having dragon veins. We will need ups and downs and striking shapes for mountains. As a result, the mountains appear to be vividly moving rather than being stationary.
The front mountains (Front Phoenix) are required to dance in front of the mountains, the back supports (Xuanwu) is required to lower his head in the mountains behind, the left dragon is required to bend, and the white tiger is required to obey in the mountains to the right. Therefore, it is best to select the “Xuanwu” hanging head type when hanging landscape paintings in spas, offices, or the back of homes; the mountain range of the white tiger bowing and taming type is better; and the mountain range of the “Front Phoenix” flying in the front is better, which coincides with the four ancient animals.
“Yang” is dominated by water, which has a high fluidity. Everyone frequently hears the reality that the song is the feeling because it is necessary to slow down the water flow in order to comply with the “Yin” and “Yang” principle of balance. Consider a river as an example; it is preferable if it meanders since you can slow down the water flow. It is inappropriate to paint turbulent waves where the water flow is too rapid and unpredictable.
The water flow is somewhat slow in paintings depicting the beach or pier, which is more appropriate in comparison. If we want to be more specific, paintings of lakes and rivers are preferable to paintings of the ocean since the ocean is salty water and cannot support the growth of wood in the five elements, but fresh water can support the functioning of the five elements and is therefore more appropriate. The most appropriate among them are paintings of lakes, but the water in the lake must be deep and clear, symbolizing the accumulation of wealth. Please consider twice before hanging paintings of the waterfall variety since the water flow is too quick and there is some money coming and going. proceed to the following issue.
