I could be bounded in a nutshell and count myself a king of infinite space.
——The Universe in a Nutshell by Stephen Hawking, quoted from Hamlet, Shakespeare

On the building site of Longmen Reservoir in Guangdong in 2010, Mrs. Lu / my mother, a civilian scientist,
got the “crude Head Stone” from a working villager who said he found the stone at a pebble beach.
The left eye on this Head Stone was chiselled by him for symmetry, the villager professed. Ribs Stone was found by Mrs. Lu at the lower reach of Conghua Reservoir in 2013.
While moving the stone, villagers told her, they had the custom of worshipping the peculiar stones.

Personally I think the first stone is artificial, the second one is crude.
However, the artificial stone has the subtle expression of human beings, the crude Ribs Stone is more like “Xingtian wields the shield and ax,
the intrepid spirit exists infinitely”, “Xingtian”, the antient god who uses nipple as eyes, navel as mouth, after his head was cut off.

In the process of photographing the stones for my mother,
she guided me to observe the surface of stones over and over.
Within her individual theory that was hard to be accepted by the science system,
the natural power that creates lives also creates the zoetic stones.

While I immersed in these images, I thought of the sentence at front;
the surface and inner of walnut have the curve pattern like a maze,
as the brain of human beings, meanwhile it is obstinate and normal, be cracked and eaten by human in different ways.
For me, the naissance of walnut do relate to the secrets of creation of cosmos, earth and nature.
It seems that smallness and vast are a pair of giant contradictor power that know the way to coexist.

Nut also means fool. Therefore a walnut contains a fool.
