Woolen Yarn balls inspired by: Imperial Qing Dynasty, Manchu, Flag Head, Hairstyle (Qitou)
As this style is not only visually special, the groups who choose to wear it should also at least bear two things in mind: The ability to resisting gravity, and the skill to keeping balanced.
This is, in the author’s opinion, the core issues to be considered in making a good structure.
In this style, the more the decorative elements are added, such as jade or hairpins, the more difficult it is to keep it balanced, as those materials are not homogeneous which adds troubles to calculating and making equations.
Keeping an object balanced does not necessarily mean keeping it visually identical in both sides, left and right. Asymmetric design is a solution to meet the resistance requirement, while at the same time make the balance status in a more versatile way.
The beautiful may exist in one of these balanced statues.
Moreover, the two yarn balls grow in different lengths in the object, each one knitted by a weaving iron needle with different strengths (in terms of materials). The stronger one is coordinated with the smaller ball (shorter yarn), while the softer one with the bigger ball (longer yarn).
It is hard to say which part lasts longer, because of this arrangement, and there is a tendency that the softer wins because it extends, spatially longer, which in Chinese called 以柔克刚/柔弱胜刚强.
However, as existing in this integral object, being long enough is not enough itself. As has been said before, the resistance against gravity, and the integral balance should be taken into account.
Thus the better way is to develop both parts, the smaller ball and the stronger ball, and to design/combine them in a holistic way. The description called 刚柔相济 best suits this situation.
Here is to start the discussion of asymmetric design and aesthetics.
