The piece represents the Cuban island from the perspective of a hurricane going through, swung by the wind and the movement of the waves, while a great star gets rooted among the mangroves.
The essence of this sculpture stems from the Chinese philosophical principle that refers to the positive energy and the equilibrium needed for life, declared the author.
She added that it also refers to good luck and the concept that even if everything is going on well, there is always some sort of inconvenience.
Fong took approximately two years to terminate a collection of nine tri-dimensional pieces that reach up to 2,80 meters high, among which is included this piece.
Together with this donation, the local painter Aziyadé Ruiz gave an oil on canvas painting called Dos Aguas (Two Waters) from the Especies y Misterio (Species and Mysteries) collection.
