Two contrasting stones, keeping a distance from each other, is mounted with a horizontal iron plate bridging the two. In the middle of the bridge, there is a tiny, rusty pyramid. The semi-crouched stone on the left seems like a human carrying a heavy load (several layers of iron plates) on its back. Thus, the two stones on the left and right reminds us of the relation between humans and the nature, while the iron material and a pyramid supported by the two stones remind us of the relationship between human labor and civilization. Standing against the backdrop of the lake, “the relationship expressed in a form” embodies more grandeur beauty.
