Gleaming pearls slink along the supple spine juxtaposing glamor and nature.  Liu Dao aligns the organic with the valuable with an alluring sashay. The ornaments trickle en arriere gracefully. An iridescent trail caresses the curvature of the swaying figure. The cultivation of each pearl is as delicate as each vertebrae and just as precious. The laden string sumptuously grazes the silky-skinned anatomy. A lucent shimmer draws our eyes to the slight balletic movements and trickles down as our minds ponder the sublime beauty in nature.
