An assembly of ancient Chinese and Greek sculptures, "Eternity–Tianlongshan Grottoes Bodhisattva, Winged Victory of Samothrace" (2013), features a Buddha from the Tianlongshan grottoes holding up a replica of the Victory of Samothrace.

These cultural references to a globalised syncretism examine the artistic aura and spirituality within these images used by the media.
