36 Chambers

Commissioned by the Wu-Tang Clan (the American hip hop group) as one of five seal designs for use on their 36 Chambers clothing line. A Chinese language chop in white characters with “36” from top to bottom on the right and the word for “chambers” on the left. Based on a chop from the Chinese Han dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD) in the shape of a coin (a square within a circle).
