Forget crop circles, it’s a massive Eight Trigrams symbol that has drawn eyes to an oilseed farm in Nankeng Village, Anhui province. The symbol, “carved” out of crops and visible from a bird’s-eye view, is approximately 360 square meters in size.
The Eight Trigrams symbol, or bagua (八卦), is related to Taoist cosmology and is an important tool used by Feng Shui masters as well as Traditional Chinese Medicine practitioners.
Tekes County in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is also famous for its Eight Trigrams layout. Its founder is Qiu Chuji, a famous Taoist who traveled west from Shandong province to meet with Ghengis Khan.
