This is one of Wong's work to celebrate Hong Kong's reunification with China. He uses geometric elements and impressionistic stippling techniques to recreate the Hong Kong Victoria Harbour. In a romantic vision of a new era, the artist fuses the expression of a "homecoming" theme with his love for his homeland.
