as depicted by

by artist: 寒花 froidrosarouge

 

Spike as the loner on dessert X

the ideal hermit life 隱居 in

Chinese paintings

 

across different eras

talented painter/ poet/ scholars

went into the mountains

and lead the life of a hermit

for various reasons

 

some of the common one include

to appreciate mother nature and

it inspires them in their artwork etc

 

to avoid serving the government

which is probably due to

different ideology /

doesn’t like the current government

and so on

 

and the other half

having served the government

offended some people or even the emperor

or get disappointed with the current system

and decided to quit and

stay in the mountain

 

and for some

who are not lucky enough to

persue the life of escapism

due to commitment etc

 

they would still

expressed their intention to do so

via their paintings / poems etc
