In the natural imagery of an artist it is long believed that the visualized can be read as a metaphor for the individual’s value and beliefs.

 

In the Taoist beliefs mountains that are pierced by caves and grottos serve as gateways to other realms, in other words are grotto heavens (洞天). These lead to the Taoist paradise where immortality exists and inhabitants live in harmony.
