Exhibition Profile

The sentence of "Alone in the High Tower" is originally from Wang Guowei 's the Three Realms of Mind :“I climbed up the high tower alone and looked into the far end of the world”. It can not only be used as a metaphor for the accomplishments of the master, but also for his proud personality and the maverick style of acting.
