I went to visit my friend’s home in the beginning of this year. The historical sites in her hometown  deeply attracted me. I think the inspiration of this painting comes from there. I wanted to depict a kind of moist and gloomy feelings to a painting. Therefore some talismans pasted on the tree is specially designed at the center of this picture. The talisman is from Taoism and it was very popular for exorcism in ancient China, so it will gives us a kind of uncanny feeling in this picture so as to increase the dramatic feeling for the atmosphere.
