Gallery 2022 – Ci Song



With the development of technology, we know more about our past than ever. In March 2021, there were discoveries found at Sanxingdui in China. It is an archaeological site filled with remarkable artifacts dating from the 12th to 11th centuries BCE.
I am amazed by the craftsmanship of the Ancient Shu people. The inspiration for this project comes from the rich texture and intricate ornaments found at Sanxingdui.
