One has to study and to master the name of constellations.
But the lessons taught by one’s parents are no mastered by study alone.
Even gems and treasures will rust unless polished.
Polishing my spirit night and days, I traverse this transient world.
When the sun rises, I shall go off to study.
Please plait my hair, my dear mother.
The Flower of Balsam, one dyes on one’s fingernails.
The words of one’s parents, one must dye in one’s heart.

There's no point in possessing magnificent jewelry.
Think again about what you do with what is been done to you.


A Gift for :iconpink-vengeance:

This is depiction about the content she told me. But I kinda forget, so I just follow my hand.

Overall this image is beautiful and mysterious and striking. I love all the rich textures. At first glance the woman comes across as somewhat innocent and nervous as if she is shrinking away from the blood but upon closer examination, the look in her eye and her holding the bloody knife makes you feel there is something much more sinister below the surface. I really like the flow of the piece and my eye is lead easily around the canvas and the longer I look the more lovely details and subtle nuances I come across. If I had something negative to say about the piece it would be that perhaps some of the shadows are just a bit too dark for my taste. Also her back where it meets her left shoulder (of the arm holding the fan) looks a bit odd. The combination of deep shadow on the far side of the neck is giving a sort of hunchback look. Anyway, as I said that is really nitpicking. Overall this is a spectacular piece with an interesting story to tell. Great work!
