Tian is Chinese for sky. The corresponding Chinese character combines the symbols for horizon and great to form a new symbol: the greatest. Thus Tian symbolizes everything humans cannot influence, anything that is beyond sheer rationalism. Artists often draw their inspiration from a source they cannot describe. Tian Books aspire to take the viewer and reader into this world.
Gabriele Golissa: ‘Qigong’

Gabriele Golissa uses Qigong, the ancient Chinese method to health, to discover and explore a world often unfamiliar and foreign but nonetheless fascinating. Fully bilingual (German/English).
