In traditional Chinese culture, Mandarin Ducks represent a life-time couple, unlike many other species of ducks. Hence they are frequently featured in Chinese art and are regarded as a symbol of conjugal affection and fidelity. Here the duck is alone but waiting for his mate as the setting sun appears to set the water on fire. As it happens, this entire painting was fused with the flame of a torch.
