Soyim

The piece of artwork is based on the pious Tibetan prayer the artisan ran across during his field trip to Tibet. These prayers would spend several months or even a year walking in no matter what weather to the sacred land in their heart, kowtowing once every step. Their piety has deeply touched the artisan, whose inspiration for this piece can be appositely explained by what one writer has said about inspiration: Creation is a process of searching, namely, searching for the intrinsic reality of a piece of work. The creator will feel the inspiration when he/she finds the intrinsic law.
