Eight Diagrams Field in the Jade Emperor mountain south foothill.

October 4, 2010

Build during the Song dynasty this octagonal field is quite unique in it’s design, rumor has it that the emperor himself used to go down there and initiate the harvest season through working on the land. It is still functioning today both as an attraction and as a living field with people employed to harvest the various crops through the seasons. Getting up close and personal with rice fields makes me wander how interesting would it be if we could grow pasta. Papardelle trees, fusilli bushes, rows of tagliatelle, gnocchi and farfalle flowers the possibilities are immense! A few more photos of the eight diagrams field here.
