Green is similar in both Western symbolism and traditional Chinese culture. In the West, green represents harmony, wealth, growth, and eco-friendliness. In Chinese culture, green stands for cleanliness and purity from contamination.

This painting is the story of life balance. We make good and wrong choices, but it's how we turn them around. We need to breathe, grow and learn. There should be no casualties on our journey! There are better ways than putting people down or stepping over them to succeed. Don't be envious of what you don't have. Desire and greed are not the same.
