This embroidery piece is based on the painting of the heavyweight modern Chinese painter which portrays the detached bearing of the well-known poet Xie Lingyun (385-433 AD) while the figure standing in wind with a raised head. The painting features an empty background, a simple composition, and free-flowing brushwork, representing a perfect illustration of both the physical look and the temperament of the figure. With flexible and elegant needlework, the embroidery piece attaches great importance to the facial expression, beard and garment of the figure.
