Mok's artistic practice centers on sculpture. This work is one of his mountain series. Mok reproduced the mountain in the medium of sculpture by imitating the form and texture of mountains presented in Chinese paintings. The texture of the mountain resembles the use of axe-cut strokes, following the principles of Chinese painting. This work not only demonstrates the spirit of traditional aesthetics, but also reveals his fondness for Chinese landscape painting.To Mok, this sculpture symbolises the sacred Taoist mountain. It represents his interpretation of the universe and his imagination of an ideal realm.
