One of the most famous Daoist image: the Neijing tu (Chart of the Inner Warp), which maps the body as an “inner landscape” with mountains, rivers, paths, forests, and stars.
The chart was engraved in 1886 on a stele in the Abbey of the white clouds based on an old silk scroll found on Mount Song (Henan). It contains textual descriptions of the internal organs, poems and quotations from the “Yellow Court Scripture”.
The head shows Kunlun Mountains, the eyes are the sun and the moon, the heart is the herdboy holding the Big Dipper. Together with his counterpart “the weaver girl” (kidneys) they send qi 氣 up to the tracheal Twelve-Storied Pagoda to the brain. The liver and gall bladder are a forest, the stomach is a granary, and a label close to the intestines says “the iron ox ploughs the field where coins of gold are sown” referring to the “golden elixir” that is one’s fundamental nature
