Q. 1. Which part of the landscape painted by Wu Daozi, did the Emperor admire and how long?
Ans. The Emperor watched the painting for a long time. He admired the wonderful scene painted by Wu Daozi. He discovered forests, high mountains, waterfalls, clouds floating in the vast sky, men on hilly paths and birds in flight.

Q. 2. What happened when Wu Daozi clapped his hands?
Ans.
When the painter Wu Daozi clapped his hands the door of the cave opened. He entered the cave but its door closed after him. The painting vanished and nothing was heard of the painter thereafter.

Q. 3. How does the Chinese story present the powers and limitations of Emperor and the painter?
Ans. 
The Emperor may commission a painter and appreciate his painting’s beauty, but only the artist reveals to him the true meaning of his work. Secondly, the Emperor may rule over the region he has conquered, but only the artist knows the way within.

Q. 4. ‘Let me show the way,’ said Wu Daozi. Explain how the author interprets the word ‘way’.
Ans. 
The word ‘way’ according to the author has two meanings:
(i) Path or the method and
(ii) the mysterious works of the universe. The painter tells the king the path to the cave or the method to reach the cave. By entering the cave and disappearing from the world he explains the mysterious works of the universe.

Q. 5. What is the importance of man between Yang and Yin?
Ans. 
Yang and Yin are the two complementary poles of the universe. Man is the conduit of communication between Heaven and Earth. His presence is essential. He is in Francois Cheng’s wonderful expression, ‘the eye of the landscape’.

Q. 6. How would you classify ‘art’ on the basis of your reading the chapter ‘Landscape of the soul’?
Ans. 
We may classify art i.e., paintings and sculpture broadly as ‘mainstream’ offering ‘outsider art’. Whereas the former are the products of trained artists, the latter are the works of those who have received no formal training, yet show talent and artistic insight. It is the art of the untrained visionary.
