Fleeting Flower Series. The image of an elephant appears amongst the flowering lotuses. As the flowers bloom, the image of the elephant becomes clearer. In time, the flowers scatter. Each flower fixes the image at the moment when it scatters. With the scattering of the flowers parts of the image disappear, yet when flowers bloom again parts reappear. The entire image is determined by the blooming of the flowers.
