The creative theme of this artwork centers around "charcoal" and "paper" as a response to the historical significance of the Qionglin area as a major town for early papermaking and charcoal production in Taiwan. It evokes the industrial memories of several generations of people from Qionglin with references to the prosperity of their hometown as a "charcoal production village" and "paper production village". Charcoal also represents the "medium that reignites the flame of life," symbolizing the enduring and continuous service of the Qionglin Township Office. The raw materials for charcoal production are collected from schools, pedestrian paths, parks, and forests, where discarded tree branches that would otherwise be sent to incinerators are transformed into charcoal, embodying the spirit of environmental sustainability. Paper, however, is not easily used in public art due to challenges of preservation. Therefore, the artwork only captures the visual imagery of paper, using stainless steel sheets to simulate the twisting posture of paper being moved by external forces or wind. This gesture also symbolizes the warm embrace and protection of Taiwan’s ocean of its islands, just as the early paper industry supported and protected Qionglin.
