The work comes from Sun Xun's single-channel animation “Tears of Chiwen” (2017). Chiwen, the legendary animal used as ornaments on two sides of roof ridge on ancient eastern architectures, is known as the dragon’s son, who is good at spewing waves and making rain. Chiwen on the roof ridge is used as a good omen to prevent fire and bring good fortune on the house. The tears of Chiwen is a metaphor. In recent east Asian history, each country absorbs western culture in different ways, and now demonstrates different appearances of westernization. Tears, are both tear and water, both sadness and fortune. Chiwen’s tears are introspection of the modernity of East Asian Culture under the context of globalization.
