Making famille rose ceramic plaque painting is more difficult than traditional paper painting, because it has to be fired twice in the kiln and there are risks of cracking or deforming. However, the colour enamels used in ceramic plaque painting are more stable and the texture is stronger. Ceramic plaque painting has more layering and three-dimensional sense than paper painting. Moreover, it can be permanently preserved, avoiding insect bites and weathering.

The journey back home of an elephant tribe in Yunnan Province in 2021 aroused the attention of the whole world. Protecting wildlife and living with them in harmony became the consensus of everyone. Elephants are extremely strong but gentle and honest. They are also helpful transporters and regarded as symbols of auspices and power. They are known as Virtuous Animals. They aspired Mr. Liu to paint this work in famille rose on ceramic plaque.
