"This painting of mine is a mixture of tradition and modernity as a motif for this train. The two destinations of the train, Beijing and Lhasa, and the Buddha is in the middle to bless this event. The tradition and the modernity will bring lots of clashes and untold events, so it is necessary to ask for a blessing to bring more ecological and human balance. The tracks represent a film negative, it is an historical event that I have recorded. I wish that everything will become smooth and successful for future generations."
