Beijing-based artist Kong Ning wore special garment resembling an "emerald green cactus" in a piece of performance art shown in Beijing on Feb 15.

Kong said as Chinese people are celebrating the Spring Festival, many in the world are still suffering from COVID-19. She said her hope was to bring power and love to them through her work, as cactus is considered the toughest flower.

Though an individual's strength is weak, when united, people's power is enormous, Kong said, so people should care for each other to make our world better.

Kong has traveled to many countries abroad and many domestic cities to conduct her Little Blue Man performance art.
