I feel that we are comparing apples and oranges here. The way Pilling
represents A DANCE has nothing to do with the way Miss M. chose to represent A
MOMENT in a dance. Pilling is compressing a whole page of words into pictograms
and ideograms and it is a story line that we are reading and, in the west, we
read from left to right. All that is happening in the Society's books is a
brief moment of illumination, best done by a picture, and any orientation of
that picture will do. The Society chooses head down for their standard.
Given that the observer is near the top of the room their choice makes
sense in that it is essentially GENDER NEUTRAL. A man looking at the picture can
orient himself and visualize it from the man's side (a simple 90 degree rotation
of view) and a woman can do the same for her view point (with her own simple 90
degree rotation).
