Relationship between painting objects and 5 elements:

Five elements represent not only substances themselves, but also generalizations of five different properties.
For example, in Chinese, horse represents zest and rapture. Therefore it can be used to represent fire element.
According to wu-hsing, west and autumn, which correspond to metal element, can be represent by white tiger.
Earth has meaning of planting grains and harvest. Anything (e.g. wheat) which embodies this meaning can be used to represent earth.
