Traditional oriental paintings use water to control the color of the shade, but in this work, instead of using water, the amount of ink applied determines the strength of the shade and creates the play of light and dark. By restricting the use of water, the artist is able to express the details more clearly, and describe the features more minutely.
The feathers and other furs were aligned according to the movement of the eagle. Each feather was also engraved to create a three-dimensional effect. The artist expresses a challenging and aggressive rush with eagle's eyes set on its goal; and paints its claws, feathers other features as delicately as possible.
The characteristic of traditional paper is that it is fused with a brush and the unique texture of it helps express the rough or delicate parts of the object. This work expresses a soaring eagle with these features.
