Literary Trail in the Southern District

The 31 birds represent the short life of Xiao, each flying to different directions and in different postures to echo with the turmoil and wandering life Xiao Hong had led.  The colour of the birds changes from white to red gradually to signify the colour of Xiao’s life.  Each bird also carries a year mark and serial number to record Xiao’s life and her writing in the corresponding year.
