This painting illustrates the artist’s personal experience. When China’s former leader, Jiang Zemin, visited Houston, Texas in October 2002, thousands of Falun Gong practitioners went there to appeal for an end to the persecution. During their appeal, practitioners withstood several days of severe cold weather and heavy rains. The practitioners refused to be affected by the weather, and stood their ground. Finally, the storm cleared and a huge rainbow appeared in the sky. This painting captures that moment.
