Lee Xiao-jing’s “Judge and His Guards” portrays the philosophy of Buddhist reincarnation in a traditional setting. Reincarnation by concept means 108 living creatures face judgment in the underworld after death. Although the idea originated from a Chinese myth, it embodies commentary on modern art, authority, justice, fraudulence, mockery, and sarcasm. This work series consists of three articles including the lord of death (Yanluowang), Ox-head (nioutou), and horse-face (mamian) distinguished by their clothing and body gesture. Under the concept of reincarnation, the authoritative and vindictive Lord of Death is somewhat expressed.
