Completed in 2007, Snow Wonderland forms part of the Genuine State series by Li Chen, where the artist seeks a spiritual state through the depiction of a hermit. This work explores the realm of oriental philosophy depicting a hermit exploring the spiritual world with a horsetail whisk. The figure stands on one foot on top of a snowy mountain with a serene complexion and subtle smile on his face. The balanced form of the figure suggests an optimum psychological state in its unique aesthetic depiction. This liberates the mind of viewers in their search for a utopian state.
