In the artist’s own words: “This unknown flower is growing freely in a memorial to the Chinese Expeditionary Force, who fought with the Japanese army in southeastern Asian to protect the road – the final supply line of the dying Republic of China – and finally failed after paying a high price. China survived and beat the Japanese Empire with significant foreign support at the end of WWII, and are grateful for the present peaceful environment won by warriors back then.”
