This "Chart of Knowledge" could sum Edward Said's argument on "Orientalism". Here a two sided wheel of data, one side romanticized with exotic illustrations, making Asian people & culture feel extremely different & "other". The European side is simple & futuristic, the only ornamentation being a sleak Blimp drifting across the top. An amazing two-sided chart of facts that is easily symbolic for how the two regions were thought of at the time... even though they were geographical neighbors, with a long history of trade and interaction.
