My interpretation might be a little ‘cliche’ but I see it as a discussion of Tibetan autonomy. For instance, in the shadow, the man looks like he’s wearing traditional Tibetan Monastic garb. He paints over a red wall, the color of Maoist Communism, and there are serious hints of yellow within the tinting. Perhaps one could even say that in painting it white (which may be an allusion to the ‘westernizing’ of China) he erases either the struggle of the Tibetan people from the world’s attention, or is ending the struggle of the Tibetan people. Triumph Over Mastery may even have a relationship too the ‘mastery’ of the Tibetan people, that is the ownership of their land. Just an interpretation though.
