This work has a functional design, serving as both art and fence. At the entrance the design incorporates both spirit of place and aesthetic symbol: The northern side entrance opens up like the pages of a book, which is the gateway to learning. With the school's Chinese name playfully rendered as an adult's hand holding the hand of a child, and the image of dancers celebrating the rites of Confucian, the side entrance becomes the gate to a fairytale world. The wall art also presents such visual imagery as the nearby Shuren Academy, the erudite environment of temples, the joy of learning, and the benevolence of teachers that flows like a stream. After entering the school campus, if one turns to look back at the work, it has the backlit effect of papercutting art, giving the space a sense of visual interpenetration and a spiritual ambiance. The work gives simple expression to its subject matter - historical sites and images with deep cultural significance. In conjunction with the energetically vibrant colors of the campus, it joins together the new and old architecture of the neighborhood to form an integrated cultural landscape, allowing a new appearance to take shape.
