Personally designed and created by the head of the Chinese Expert Group for the Establishment of the Chinese National and International Standard of Acupuncture Point Locations. First to utilize real human body images along with x-ray image inlays of identical postures of me same model. First to add a new type of view——the plane figure——into an acupuncture wall chart. For some special points, vertical views, x-ray images, and layered anatomical images were meticulously designed and ingeniously organized with the main body image to form a harmonious whole. In the past half century, innovation has once again been brought to figure postures and picture composition in acupuncture charts, achieving a high level of integration within the areas of scientific expression and artistic presentation.
黄龙祥，Huang Long-xiang, Chief Professor of the China Academy of Chinese Medical Sciences, has been working painstakingly on the history, theory and standardization of acupuncture since the 1980s. In the acupuncture field, he has been tirelessly doing his best to develop a 'business card' to let the world know what acupuncture is, where it is from, and what makes it so special that it facilitates the dialogue and understanding between people of different cultures and different academic backgrounds.
To realize this dream, he organized a writing and designing group in 2001 and gave it a unique name that reflects the integration between the East and the West——L.X. Huang 3A (Acupuncture, Anatomy, Art). Since then, they have published thirteen works, two of which are in English: Evidence-Based Surface Anatomy for Acupuncture, the representative work of acupuncture integrating anatomy and art, and the WHO Standard Wall Chart of Acupuncture Point Locations, the latest work unifying science and art.
