This piece addresses this prompt: “If my body could talk it would say…”
This piece displays the self-assured, harmonious nature by which one’s body is capable of interacting with its surroundings despite feeling that one is merely a clumsy and lanky figure. To convey the theme of harmony, there is a lot of Chinese symbolic imagery: the flowers are magnolia and jasmine which symbolize delicacy, grace, and elegance. The panda symbolizes peace and gentle strength. The bamboo is also a symbol of harmony between nature and people.
