The willows lightly touch the pond and make ripples
The beautiful willow tree blossoms accompany the moon in the water.
The buffalos gaze at each other and communicate by heart
They lean to each other with a destiny of several past lives
This piece is inspired by Wu Guangzhong’s painting “Water Buffalos” from the year 1993.
He used simple Chinese calligraphic lines to depict the interactions between buffalos. In this tranquil and warm countryside setting, the unleashed buffalos echo to people’s emotions deep inside and remind them of the simple and unsophisticated childhood. This piece shows small houses in Southern China and two buffalos in a pond with willows swaying in the wind, creating a peaceful and touching scene.
