Dunhuang murals with Fourfold

Class of: 2024

Major: Fashion Design BFA

Medium: Accordion book

Faculty: Tamar Samir

Prompt: I got this idea from my seminar project, which is about ‘Spirit.’ I described how the Dunhuang mural, oneness, and Heidegger’s fourfold affect me. Therefore I choose Dunhuang murals and different owers to represent different elements I choose.

I decided to use different   owers to represent the different elements I choose. For example, the lotus represents the immortal because, in Chinese culture, Buddha always sitting in a lotus. Also, the model was created by myself, the half head is a man, half is a woman to show Yin and Yang principle. I also draw the background to make the model seem to be a part of the landscape I draw, to represent that human is an integral part of nature.
