A set of two cups and a coaster, made to mimic the form of the Ba Gua Daoist symbol.
Primarily designed as espresso cups, the ying and yang, will do wonderfully as a way to serve any kind of two element drink to a special guest. Or maybe you always wanted an unusuall way to share a morning coffe with someone close to your heart, a pleasant way to share Her Ying with His Yang. Either way this will make a wonderfull and uncanny gift to someone with a more spiritual and gentle side to their personality.
The desing itself is based on the Dao symbol of Ba Gua, constructed from eight trigrams surrounding the Ying and Yang. The trigrams represent the fundamental concepts of Taoist cosmology , by describing them as sets of three lines which are either broken or whole, thus representing their earthly and heavenly aspects.
This set itself can only be printed in a single colour, however we have made its elements available for seperate purchase so you can complete your own black and white ying yang.
