Look at this green blossomlike entity.
What may it be.
First, it is a living process, following the shape
The artists want to give it.
A natural architecture without specific function.
Sit and look at it.
A summit of whole flowering nature,
Florescense of nature.
For the artists, it is kind of
Communication with nature
During inventing it,
Form it, working with it,
Taking care of it.
Flowing water, symbol of life
An order of parting and coming back again,
Fading away and ressurection.
Willows and water,
Everywhere in the world willows grow along waterlines.
Poets sang of it, common people traditioned it.
We found a poem by Wang Wei
Separated in rows, the lovely trees stand
one next to another,
Their inverted reflections cast in the clear
They do not take after the willows by the
Which grieve at parting in spring wind.
