Img.532 from Seismograph (#E1a)

Img.532 (#E1a) Here is probably the most accurate replica reflecting the external shape of the "Zhang Heng seismograph". It gives a fairly good idea of what this instrument actually looked like. For example, it shows that originally only the heads of the dragons were attached to the "antenna chamber," not the whole dragons that are seen on other replicas. (In fact, whole dragons attached to the "antenna chamber" in my opinion can even distort the correct reception of the telepathic alarm signal, or "chi.") The only inaccuracy in the above replica is the uppermost part - it was originally a part of the spherical canopy and did not have the flange seen on the above replica.
