Each artwork has a brief statement:
- Footsteps of the Spring
Whisper of the fish in the pond lulled the geranium to sleep. Birds cuddling in the blue sky. Can you hear the footsteps of the Spring?
Bird on the Clothesline
Neither having the passion to fly, nor the patience to stay. There’s nothing worse than having wings and not being able to fly. Sky is needed for flying, other than wings.
The first one said no, the second said yes. The first remained alone, the third remained silent. Afterwards all remained alone. Somewhen together, somewhen alone; just like humans.
Beyond the Window
The restless bird and the withered flowers know the mystery of the snow beyond the window.
