A sister for each panel and one brother in the background, the four panels of a willow wood paravent display an old photograph of a generation in a family born a decade ahead of China’s one-child policy. The paravent shows the children’s faces sloping downward from the left to the right, like the hill near their home where they used to play in their school uniforms growing up. The girls would take turns mothering the baby, but each would always be mothering their older brother, even if he knew nothing about it. Growing up, children will move apart like branches, before settling away from each other like seeds, and the paravent shows a family that has long since moved on from the captured moment, in a country where families of such a size have also become a thing of the past.
