This is a work of conceptual openness. The pair of swans, surrounded by hanging branches, becomes the central focus. The foliage and the sky above the distant trees form a speckled backdrop seeming to portray the many interweaving connections between heaven and earth. The red autumn leaves and the wintry light on the lake surface forms a sharp contrast, leaving a lasting impression. As if denoting the beauty of life and like how the plum blossoms can only emit its fragrant scent after persisting the harsh and biting cold.
