Artwork Description

Xin-Ji-Li according to one translation means (heart/mind is truth)..

Inspired by a doco on the new dam being constructed on the Yangtze River in China..So disheartening to see tens of thousands of years worth of history being flooded out...in an effort to power 10% of the country Sad. on the other hand it is spectacular to look at.

this is a look at a cast system i guess..You can see where the humans live..around the large plate is MEANT to be the human figure..Though at only 4400px wide it wasn't worth expending the effort..then we have where the deity's Lay, the statue and architecture is a represetation of the afterlife..Something my heart and mind believes in.

Such beauty, such majesty. The background itself is perfection.The statues add the perfect touch.
