The majestic trees in rural China bring shade and beauty to much of the artisan’s work. He masterfully conveys the sensation of village life, depicting a huge Sakura tree overlooking the village. According to some cultures, the Sakura tree is a very significant symbol of power. It represents a feminine beauty and sexuality and holds an idea of feminine dominance.
