The golden dragon fruit, depicted in the painting, is a famous Au Lac fruit which can occasionally be found on the dinner table at the Hsihu Center. In Master's painting, the color of the pulp is distinctively black and white, with the crimson skin embellished by the quivering leaves. It gives an impression of being fresh as well as being deliciously sweet!

turn out dull and boring. Through Her paint brush, Master has
captured the charm of "action in inaction", and given
life to this Golden Dragon fruit, which comes from Her homeland
