"The Little Dragon Dance Head” (2023), by Alexandra Green, is an artistic reinterpretation of a dragon head used in the Little Dragon Dance that was originally made by Liu Yingsheng. In the spirit of cultural preservation, this piece represents cross-generational cultural exchange through an art object. This object is representative of his village’s culture, Tianyin Village, and the illustration of that object is a result of the friendship Liu and the artist were able to form through cultural exchange.
