Deng Dafei and He Hai (The Utopia Group) responded to the life and work of Huntly’s James Legge; a prominent scholar of China and translator of classics such as Confucius’s ‘I Ching’, Chinese into English.

The Utopia Group produced a series of large scale drawings depicting the life era of James Legge, exhibited in his former residence and accompanied by a town parade. This work, a portrait of James Legge, was originally found in the stairwell of the scholar’s old flat and shows the portrait surrounded by a maze.

The work is no longer on public display.
