In response to the environment conservation campaign by the Nature Society of Malaysia, Dr. Choong and a group of artists made an expedition into the tropical forest of Endou Rompin in 1985 as an attempt to have a better understanding of natural heritage. In the forest, he realized and was enlightened by the growing and ageing process of nature. And through observing the relationship between the lingzhi (a kind of mushroom) and dead wood trunk, he discovered the cycle of the life in nature.
为了向应马来西亚自然协会的环保运动,锺博士和一些画家于 1985 年深入「恩道云宾」原始森林探幽,以期贴近大自然,掘发大自然之秘奥。在森林中,他发现了,也被启示了对大自然中的生长和衰老的相互关系。从观察灵芝长在枯木而悟出了生长和衰老的循环之道,并与佛家的因果关系,不吻而合。他以普普(Pop)手法把灵芝形态放大数十倍,以纸浆揉塑主体造型。雕刮出表面纹理,在它未干时先染色,绘出粗略形态,干后再以手绘及喷枪调整色调,绘制出含蓄色彩及粗糙纹理,以象征风雨侵蚀的㾗迹 —— 大自然的现象。生生息息,生老病死,枯荣循环是大自然之秘奥。
