The Dong Pavilion is a traditional space for the Dong people, a structure used in field labor for resting. The cedar trees in the mountains and the children of the villages grow taller alongside, and once the trees are tall enough to be used for their wood, they are transformed into homes for the next generation, as well as into pavilions and drum towers for congregation. The actual process of woodworking becomes an abiding support during this transition into a different stage of life.

Found in the Guangzhou Yue He Flower, Bird, Fish & Insect Market, this birdcage is made from bamboo that has been grown for over ten years in the mountains of south China and subsequently let to dry for a further ten years in order to retain its shape. The form of the cage is a southern Chinese style and usually used to keep the lovebird ( 相思鸟 ). Because of its broad shape, it is named the ‘water chestnut cage’ ( 马蹄笼 ). The smaller cage located within is for keeping a grasshopper as the bird’s food.
