Picturing the True Form investigates the long-neglected visual culture of Daoism , China ’s
primary indigenous religion, from the tenth through thirteenth centuries with
references to earlier and later times. In this richly illustrated book, Susan
Huang
provides a comprehensive mapping of Daoist images in various media,
including Dunhuang manuscripts, funerary artifacts, paintings, and other
charts, illustrations, and talismans preserved in the fifteenth-century Daoist
Canon. True form (zhenxing), the key concept behind Daoist visuality, is
not a static picture but entails an active journey of “seeing” underlying and
secret phenomena through a series of metamorphoses.





The book’s structure mirrors the two-part Daoist journey
from inner to outer. Part I focuses on inner images associated with meditation
and visualization practices for self-cultivation and longevity. Part II
investigates the visual and material dimensions of Daoist ritual. Interwoven
through these discussions is the idea that the inner and outer mirror each
other and the boundary demarcating the two is fluent. Huang also reveals three
central modes of Daoist symbolism—aniconic, immaterial, and ephemeral—and shows
how Daoist image-making goes beyond the traditional dichotomy of text and image
to incorporate writings in image design. These particular features distinguish
Daoist visual culture from its Buddhist counterpart.
