一個人的強大並不在於他的外表，而是因為強大的內心。這件作品亦靜亦動，形成靜態的形體與澎湃激昂的內心之間的對比，渾然天成，強調大山大河，懷柔擁抱之勢。一位靜止的武士正在彈奏一把沒有琴弦的古木，從而進入到老子所說的「大音希聲」的境界，天籟之音，余音繞梁，琴聲高逸，曲高和寡，知音難覓，無聲勝有聲…在這無形的精神音符中，已不需要激烈的動作與肢體語言，人們在不知不覺中被這莊嚴而崇高的藝術氣息所吸引，從而走進更為廣闊而遼遠的武士的精神深處。 A person’s strength cannot be measured by external appearances but by a passionate heart.

A person’s strength cannot be measured by external appearances but by a passionate heart. This work symbolises the difference between movement and stillness, and we see the tension between a peaceful image and a surging heart. It is like nature itself, the static mountains contrasting with flowing rivers.
Lao Tzu, the philosopher said “the greatest melody is composed in silent harmony”. You cannot hear it, but within this magnificent sculpture, you can feel it.
A static warrior is playing an ancient wooden instrument, but there are no strings, which symbolises Lao Tzu’s saying. The celestial music is so rarified and beautiful that at this moment in time it is better not to hear the sound at all.
Violent movement and fluid body language is unnecessary to express the intangible melody of the spirit. Subconsciously people will be attracted by the sublime artistic nature of this work, and then be able to access a broader and more distant world deep within the spirit of the warrior.
