"Vacant"

In many Asian cultures, the cicada songs indicate the coming of spring or summer. Cicadas live as nymphs underground of most of their lives, then shed their skins on a nearby plant and become adults.


This cicada shell is "vacant," as the Chinese character says. The shedding of the insect to me symbolizes one's emptying of a chaotic mind and the freeing of his or her imagination.
