Gu Wenda, another internationally renowned Chinese artist, drew inspiration from Confucianism and the 24 solar terms the ancient Chinese used to describe the year's changes in season.
Gu's installation, Tian Xiang, literally "astronomical phenomena", is 24 rocks inscribed with unintelligible characters, each referencing one of the 24 solar terms. Sourced from the bottom of the sea in East China's Shandong province, the birthplace of Confucianism, the rocks are called Ru Shi (Rocks of Confucianism).
