Artist Ju Ming is recognized as a leading force in the world of contemporary Asian sculpture, a movement that is characterized by the fusion of traditional culture and modern civilization.

In this sculpture, with the right leg planted, the unrestricted force is partially collected in the twisted waist, the rest manifesting itself in a single strike that travels through to the tip of the left leg. Although the ferocity of the movement is predominates the sculpture, nonetheless there remains a strong sense of balance and ease.
