    This piece presents another representation of Bodhisattva, slightly differently portrayed from the image used in “The Reality Behind the Symbol” since it belongs to an earlier period of the Tang Dynasty, just like the Bodhisattva depicted in “The Flower of Life”. This piece, while showing the decomposed light or overlapping of backgrounds, offers us an imagined view of how the original, unpolluted state of the figure might have looked like. The quantum reality formed by blocks of energy that is believed to enclose the other 7 dimensions is represented here through the existence of a unique light source, projecting shadow against a background, and three more dimensions added on to it: two more material backgrounds distinguishable on the right behind the first obvious background, similar in solidity and illumination, and a final background of decomposed light.


    这幅画描绘了菩萨的另一种形象。这个形象和《生命之花》里的菩萨形象,都稍稍区别于《表象背后的现实》里唐朝初期的菩萨形象。本作同样画有多重背景和立体光谱,同时“还原”了菩萨像未经风霜时的模样。画家在创作时,决定为它增加三层维度,“打破”它所在的空间。菩萨像身后即是第一层维度的背景,其后是两层清晰可见的实体背景,以相似的质感和明暗度表现,下方则辅以光谱结构打底,借此表达量子世界般的观感,犹如足以囊括另外 7个维度的亚原子层面的世界。
