Design Concept

I am both a designer and a disciple of Wudang martial arts, so I chose the "One-line Crossing" Wudang Quan. This martial move requires practitioners to fly by hanging ropes as swiftly as swan.

In order to match the design with the theme, I replaced the rope with the strings of the guitar in the form of graphic creativity, which spans the ends of the cliff and looks like a cable bridge. This is the bridge of music and culture, which may connect ancient and modern times, and also where the East meets the West.


I once read a poem by Yuan Jie, a poet in the Tang Dynasty: "Now there are three or four Taoist priests, and Ruzhi refines jade to lighten himself. The feather is next to the ravine, floating far away like a crane. I think what my picture wants to express is the scene of meeting Taoist priests deep in the mountains and flying over the clouds.
