Illustration n5 from a still open series with the non-definitive name "Oracoli" ("Oracles").
This drawing is my personal reinterpretation of Ji-Cheng city, the most ancient core of che chinese capital city of Beijing in China. For this drawing, I decided to use the shape of the chinese pagoda and concentrated my efforts on multiplying the buildings, which cling to each other on the different floors. The base is very compact, characterized by a few angular spurs which increase its strength, while at the top a gigantic acroterion keeps the city hanging from the sky. At the bottom right, the cartouche with the logo of the city. Finally I decided to represent the background with a mountainous landscape, typical of traditional Chinese illustrations.
