Just Enough Ego

Created by Lu Kesi as an illustration for the book The Beyond Within: the Downtown Dao of Lan Su Chinese Garden by Daniel Skach-Mills. The phrase “Just enough ego so as not to put our food into the mouth of the person sitting next to us at the table” is from this book.

The illustration is based on one in the “Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Painting” of the Ming dynasty.
