"The Ten Immortals - Deluge" has been carefully made with ink on Korean paper and it emphasizes the mythic symbolism of Korean culture. It includes the mortals' ineffectual aspiration for endless lives which is represented or portrayed by twisting or reconstructing the connotations of a particular perspective. In "The Ten Immortals - Deluge", the 'water' typically symbolizes longevity, passiveness, and flexibility in Korean tradition. However, the artist depicts the scene of overflowing water as an aggressive gesture to reflect on the primary aspect of water that is often overlooked.
