Created at the end of 1999, the Motherland series took Cai 16 years to complete. Divided into three parts as Custom to Motherland, Ode to Motherland, and Refinement to Motherland (the same name as three parts of the Chinese Book of Songs), Cai’s Motherland series is a combination of skills from different regions as well as different historical periods. Concrete modelling plus modern material language gave the artist a focus on history and humanity.
