The Chiwen is a legendary animal decoration used on the both ends of the oriental ancient buildings’ roof ridge. Known as the dragon’s son, it is good at spewing waves and making rain, which helps prevent fire and bring good fortune to the house.
Tears of Chiwen is a metaphor. Tears symbolize water, happiness and sadness. Since the recent history of East Asia began, each country has absorbed Western cultures in its own ways, and now takes on a new look of Westernization. The work Tears of Chiwen is a reflection on the modernity of East Asian Culture in the context of globalization. -- SUN Xun
