In music, polyphony is a type of musical texture consisting of two or more simultaneous lines of independent melody, as opposed to a musical texture with just one voice, monophony, or a texture with one dominant melodic voice accompanied by chords, homophony.



So, Cui puts characters from the Renaissance Period into Chinese landscape paintings, or scenes from “The Classic of Mountains and Seas,” an ancient Chinese text, with a compilation of mythic geography and beasts. The text, called “Shan Hai Jing” in Chinese, is largely a fabulous geographical and cultural account of pre-Qin Dynasty (221-207 B.C.), as well as a collection of Chinese mythology. The text describes over 550 mountains, 300 rivers, 100 historical figures and 400 deities and beasts.
