"Most of the baskets used in the last shooting were from Japan, and people felt that there were too much Japanese elements. Therefore, I want to have an artistic cooperation that can fully reflect the Chinese elements. Undoubtedly, bronze ware is the most historical and unique equipment with Chinese characteristics," said Wang.

Kuma, who watched the shoot at the scene, spoke highly of the collaboration.

"This is a masterpiece of cooperation between the two masters, conveying the eastern aesthetic concept. The sense of beauty is different from western thinking, which emphasizes that life and art exist separately, but in the eastern Zen world, there is art in life and life in art,"he said.

In fact, arranging flowers is just Wang's hobby and his major is painting. The artist is known for his fish paintings, which have appeared on two Japanese stamps and were once used to decorate the Diaoyutai State Guesthouse in Beijing, China.

Over the years, Wang has been committed to people-to-people exchanges between China and Japan.

During the COVID-19 outbreak, Wang donated 300,000 face masks to China's Wuhan city and Zhejiang province through friends. When face masks were in short supply in Japan, he bought a large number of masks from China and donated them to the University of Tokyo and other agencies.

"I just did something within my power, "said Wang, "Although I am living abroad, my heart connects with my home country. I hope that I can serve as a bridge for people-to-people exchanges between China and Japan so that our two peoples can jointly fight the pandemic and overcome difficulties."
