Icons For Understanding Eastern and Western Culture Part III

Well, you’ve all been asking for it. Here’s the final series of cultural icons from Yang Liu. These icons were designed to reflect the differences throughout Western and Eastern cultures. Yang Liu was born in Beijing, China and later moved to Germany to further her education. Her work was recently showcased at the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

This was a three part series.

Part One includes: Anger, Making Contacts, Definition of Beauty, Elderly in Day-to-Day Life, In the Restaurant, Me, Handling of Problems

Part Two includes: Queue When Waiting, Shower Timing, Sundays on the Road, The Child, and Party

Transportation

Loads of people back home are going green and finding alternate routes to work that involve less harm for the environment, when the weather permits that is. Over in Asia, people have used bicycles as a primary means of transportation for ages and are quickly making the switch to motor vehicles.

Westerners assert a lot more independence than Easterners. I think sometimes this point is best reflected while traveling. Westerners will travel solo or in small groups. Most Asians travel in large groups.

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Asia since 2003. I moved from China to Taiwan in 2006. I'm an experienced businesswoman and have worked in many leadership positions in Asia. In addition to my own work, I've been writing professionally about Asia, travel and health advocacy since 2007, providing regular content to publishing companies and travel publications in Asia and North America. I started writing about my health journey in 2009 after being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS, which came with other massive health issues. These diagnoses were the start of my journey as a health advocate and patient leader. Since then, My Several Worlds has been recognized worldwide as a top site for AS, fibromyalgia, and chronic illness by WEGO Health and Healthline.
