Another study from one of Ju Ming's series of the eight most influential people in history, this is his tribute to Lao Tsu, father of the way. Here he is depicted on his journey to Tibet, after he composed the Tao Te Ching for Yin Xi

Stand before it - there is no beginning
Follow it and there is no end
Stay with the Tao, Move with the present
