Guests at the opening of the show were asked to take the Christmas tree ornaments to their homes; the guests in turn sent the photos of the ornaments in their places to the arist. The text below is about the utopian realm where Taoist fairy Xiwangmu lived from an ancient Chinese book, and embroidered partially on the ribbons of the Christmas tree ornaments.

 

"The Kunlun range is the terrestrial capital (Xiadu) of the Heavenly (Yellow) Emperor. It is guarded by Lu Wu, a deity with the body of a tiger and nine tails. The subjects of the emperor are a kind of bird called chunniao. The phantastic biography of King Mu of Zhou, Mu Tianzi zhuan, narrates his journey to the Kunlun Range and how he admired the palace of the Yellow Emperor. The"capital" in which a giant stalk of grain is growing, nine wells can be seen that are enclosed in jade thresholds, and where the nine city gates are guarded by animals called Kaiming. They have the body of a tiger, but nine heads with human faces, and are accompanied by other animals, like phoenixes or snakes. A hundred deities are living there that live of a lot of plants rendering immortality." (Source: Yuan Ke 袁珂 (ed. 1985). Zhongguo shenhua chuanshuo cidian 中國神話傳說詞典, pp. 235-236.
