    This painting comes to represent all aspects shown in this collection comprised. In Greek mythology, the Chimera is a hybrid monster, and it is usually described as having the body of a goat, the head of a lion and the tail of a dragon. “Chimera” is also used as an expression to define any hybrid entity, and thus, this particular Chimera comprises the worlds of the tangible and intangible, western and eastern art, the symbolic elements and the most visual and material aspects of this collection, all connected by water as the most primordial element of life.

     

    这幅画,描绘出了敦煌系列作品的共性。在希腊神话中,喀迈拉是一只长着羊身、狮头、龙尾,混杂着各种样貌的怪物。“喀迈拉”( Chimera)这个词同时也被用来描述多元融合的实体。因此,这幅画借喀迈拉之名,描绘了敦煌系列作品中虚与实、东与西、具象与意象并存的质感,贯穿其中的,是万物赖以生存的水。
