"For some mundane reasons, I had to break up with my beloved boyfriend. I wanted to escape from this era, back to ancient times, and be a woman of the Tang Dynasty. Symbolically, he has turned into a butterfly, guarding me with love. I personally made the Tang Dynasty costumes and hair accessories. Then I painted this self-portrait and phantom background symbolizing my past life: past and present. I am obsessed with love." – XAIOXUE WANG
