Beautiful Animations of the Solar Terms

Here’s some beautiful animated gifs of the solar terms by Chinese designer Oamul Lu, who was also responsible for the Chinese New Year Google doodle earlier this year.

The animations are of the solar terms, which consist of “24 points in traditional East Asian lunisolar calendars that matches a particular astronomical event or signifies some natural phenomenon”.

Below are some of my favourites, but be sure to head over to Oamul Lu’s account on Behance to view the full collections:
