This depiction of a pagoda was executed with stunning colours and a faint misty glow to it – which gives a surreptitious, olden feel. The architecture of a pagoda has always been magnificent, as its tiered towers with multiple eaves and spectacular roofs are a sight to behold.

Painter Wang Meng Hu was born in 1942. He was an outstanding youth member of the Beijing Youth Palace. Under the teachings of Master Quan Quang Zhi, he gained a good knowledge of art. Having a sound foundation laid, he studied under various masters.
