Hemicyclic Anthelion is an exhibit of the current incarnation of Lin's imagination of visual mysticism. His works depict scenes and symbols that serve as prayers toward natural and supernatural phenomena. An anthelion is a rare optical phenomenon appearing on the parhelic circle opposite to the sun as a faint white halo. It is believed that the anthelion is the origin of the tradition of painting a halo around the head of saints in Western art.
