Monkey Show by ChinoChiu Monkey Show by ChinoChiu
woodcut, 33cm X 27cm
I love the novel "life and death are wearing me out" by Moyan, it told the real history of China after 1949. And I also love the characters of the story. Ximen Nao, a kindly landowner was cruelly executed in Mao's Land Reform Movement of 1948. He went to Hell, the king of the underworld allowed him to reborn but not as a human.So Ximen Nao returned to his own farm first as a donkey, then an ox, pig, dog, monkey, and finally the big-headed boy. You can read fifty years of modern Chinese history through the animals' eyes. It's very interesting and make me a bit sad...we can not change anything when we face social injustice in China.

Great stuff, I love the stippling. I use that in my woodcuts too.
