Steven H. Cullinane has a great wealth of interesting material about square and cubic figures on various blogs and web sites. This figure was inspired by his arrangement of von Franz’s “box” style representation of the hexagrams. In the above figure, solid and open lines are shown as they are in the regular hexagrams. At the top is 01 The Creative, at the bottom is 02 The Receptive, at left is 64 Before Completion, and at right is 63 After Completion. It’s not quite symmetric, but I think it looks pleasing. The trigrams can be separated into two N and Z figures, but I’m still trying to find the best arrangement to display them.
