Stunning Chinese Ink Animation: 气韵生动 (The Way )

Wow, this is a cool.

This is what the poster of this video said about it:

Give this a minute: it goes from simple and formless to amazing very quickly (don't give up when it's fuzzy--wait for the soaring ink strokes). From the submitter: This is computer animation in the Chinese ink-painting style. Created in 2003 by Ching Huang using Maya. The animation reflects an ancient Taoist view of the world as a constant changing process or metamorphosis of forms rather than as seemingly isolated entities. The law of changing is seemingly chaotic and spontaneous, and yet holds a subtle deterministic order--somewhat matching the notion of fractals in Chaos theory. Original music by Liu Xing.
