TheTaj Mahal is indeed one of the world’s most beautiful work of architecture. It is beautiful from every angle. To build Taj Mahal, Shah Jahan used up all the wealth of the Mughal Empire, which was one of the reasons why the Empire perished. This beautiful building, which is embedded with jewels, was a grave Shah Jahan built for his beloved wife. I used Cubist techniques of dissecting the image to display the beauty of the building. I also blended inSurrealism to express all the vicissitude that this building has experienced;with a history of love, hate and sadness.
泰姬瑪哈陵不愧是世界一美麗的建築物，從哪個角度看都是美麗的。為建造這個建築物，沙賈汗王(Shah Jahan)用盡蒙兀兒王國(Mughal Empire)所有的國庫財富，造成此王朝滅亡的原因之一。這個以寶石嵌入裝飾的美麗建築物，不過是沙賈汗王為寵妃建造的墓而已。我以立體派分割畫面的技巧，表現此建築物的美麗，及摻入幻想表現此建築歷盡滄桑，有愛、恨、悲的歷史。
