Alien 2, in the same vein of Eternity-(Buddha in Nirvana), juxtaposes two sculptures: an “hermaphrodite” from Greek mythology and a female figure from the Western Han Dynasty. The Chinese figurine and the Western sculpture are combined in a certain attitude to create an intimate and caring atmosphere, reflecting the attraction of Eastern and Western civilizations for one another, as well as their reciprocal intricacies, curiosity and desire.
