The work of artist-designer Nod Young often plays off of traditional Chinese art forms. In this piece, he uses the red angular style of Chinese paper cuts to depict Na Zha from the 16th century novel Journey to the West. After commiting suicide, Na Zha was reborn as a lotus flower with three heads and six arms.
