In other words, it's the artist of the past, from the Renaissance, talking with the artist of the recent Chinese past. It's also a philosophical dialogue.”

The dialogue between China and the West is one of the common themes in the exhibit, titled "Sculpting the soul of a nation.” Wu Weishan also delves into the suffering of his homeland, sculpting images of the Nanjing massacre, and the cruelty at the hands of the Imperial Japanese Army.

Since 1998, his sculptures have been displayed in the United Kingdom, the United States, Canada, Japan, South Korea and the Netherlands.
