In the artist’s own words: “Among those who like mountains, few has the opportunity to get so close to the world's top - Mount Everest (or Mount Qomolangma in Chinese). And among those few people who come to it, even fewer are lucky to see the top in person. I would be proud enough to say, I'm among those luckiest! At an altitude of 5,200m, I saw the world's top right before I was about to leave. The golden sunrise lighting went across the fog surrounding the top, and spread its splendid gloss on the snow surface. At that moment, I was feeling living in a fairytale. What a gorgeous scene! What an unforgettable moment!"
