Inspired by the Martial Art of Wushu, pictures of the martial artists are originally taken at Wudang in China.
This martial artist is a special character. Starting at the age of 4, now over 70 years old, he has been stationed in Wudang most
of his life and, to this day, still performs shows on a daily basis with his 7kg weapon.
The idea of that since the moon is the reason why the tides rise up, then it can also be a contributing force to the Chi that exists
in the Wudang martial art of Wushu.
Its force enters the gates of the after world, which is represented by the Chinese Doors in the far background of the moon itself.
Sparkles were used to associate a dream like quality of the image, with the Birds which represent the grace and nature element of
this special form of martial art.
The landscape itself is the Mysterious Jars which are found in Laos, taken by How Hwee Young (International Phojournalist www.howhweeyoung.com)
