and conducts an in-depth discussion that how the modern civilization causes harm and damage to ecological balance.
The work was illustrated with traditional Japanese pan watercolor on Chinese rice paper.
The distinctive combination of the unique permeability of rice paper and the oriental classical charm of mineral pigments is in line with the multi-level strong colors of autumn forests in northern China.
Chinese traditional line drawing technique is adopted, and decorative details of Chinese painting are added on the base of realism, which depicts daily life of Oroqen people, the Son of the Forest.
