One can identify two ways in which semantic meaning was symbolically represented. The first was a formal layout in the planning of the palace. Geometrical configuration, including symmetry, centrality, concentricity and the use of the two cardinal axes, constitutes a basic level of formal articulation. Naming of the locations, with its rich lexical and semantic references, as we can see here, also adds a level of representation on the plan. The second way of representing ideology was through ceremonial and religious practices unfolding on key lines and points of the formal plan, such as the central axis and the central courtyard of the Palace City. The recursive enactment of these elaborate rituals and sacrifices signified the sacredness of the sage ruler under heaven: they represented the ideology of the imperial rule. Both of them were based on geometrical formality of the plan on the land surface viewed from above. Both of them, more importantly, belong to the order of symbolism and representation of the ‘formal plan’.
