Bamboo Tree

Bamboo was always one of my favorite trees. But very recently, I got to know very interesting things about it, which increased my love for Bamboos.
In ancient traditional Chinese culture; Bamboo is regarded as a behavior model of the gentleman. It’s a symbolization of virtue; it is always closely related to people of positive spirits. Its deep root denotes resoluteness, straight stem represents honorability, its interior modesty and its clean exterior exemplifies chastity. Because of its features like uprightness, tenacity and hollow heart, people endow bamboo with integrity, elegance and plainness, though it is not physically strong. Similarly a gentleman, a man does not need to be physically strong, but he must be mentally strong, upright, and perseverant. Just as a bamboo is hollow-hearted, he should open his heart to accept anything of benefit and never have arrogance or prejudice.
Lastly, I created this in the love of Bamboo.
