The paintings

 

This body of ink paintings is based on the ancient set of poems, Nine Song, written by Qu Yuan in the 3rd Century. Nine Songs is considered to be the Chinese equivalent of  Divina Commedia by Dante Alighieri.

 

The poems, and the works, are prayers for humanity through heaven and earth, and the final chapter is a prayer for the National Martyr, with the works bringing in current events and tragedies.
