Rebound Lute

洪福遠 , 1986

The pattern is derived from the mural of Amitāyurdhyāna Sūtra in Mogao Cave112, Gansu Province. It is the representative work of murals in the Tang Dynasty(923-937). The dancer stands on one leg, raises his other leg and bends over, with his body twisted and extremely tense. She raises her hands and play the lute behind her head to show her superb playing skills. Therefore, this picture is also called Rebound Lute. Rebound Lute has appeared many times in textbooks and works of art in mainland China. It is also a landmark sculpture of Dunhuang. The flying ribbons make her graceful and infectious, as if they make people feel the beauty of Buddhist dance music.
