This work is inspired by a photograph Ziang took when he saw a dead bird lying on the ground. The bird was crushed, and covered by his shadow when he knelt down to gaze at it. No one will know its cause of death, only the result. The cracks on the side of the ground seem to echo the body of the bird, suggesting the fragility and impermanence of life. For Ziang, this painting can also be regarded as a self-portrait.
