This reflective silver sculpture represents culture and identity through unlikely abstract motifs. The semi circular elements on the top of the sculpture represent the Chinese character for Man “人” (ren). It is joined to the round sphere beneath which represents Earth. Together, the elements resemble the Chinese character for cooperation “合” (he). This image of Man joined to the Earth is thought to represent harmony and boundless energy. This sculpture also symbolises a young dragon and phoenix joined together, embodying similar traits of fortune, elegance, and beauty.
