    The print ‘A shepherd boy of Sa nationality’ represents a shepherd boy of Sa nationality (part of Yi nationality) which is based near the famous stone forest in Kunming City, Yunnan Province. They always help their family to herd sheep in their spare time. The background of the picture stands for the stone forest. I created this picture because I was attracted by the lovely image of the shepherd boy.'
