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. This painting was not used in the book but—before color was added—the line drawing was combined with another image in Photoshop to create the illustration for the last page of the text.
