Created as an illustration for the book The Beyond Within: the Downtown Dao of Lan Su Chinese Garden by Daniel Skach-Mills. I had planned this for the last page of the text but the author asked if these figures could be illustrated inside a gourd. I created another image of a gourd (i011) and scanned them both into the computer and combined them in Photoshop as the finished image for the book.
