The size indicated are for the entire art work and not individual test-tube.
Cai borrows the craft of traditional varnishing "inner bottle" painting. Which requires great skill using fine brushes to paint inside a snuff bottle in reverse sceneries.

Cai applied the skill to his test-tube series using this modern material he deconstructed the traditional landscape imagery by transplanting them into (the experimental ware), an assembly-line manufacturing test tubes.

The visual represented the collision of tradition with modernity reveal struggles about traditional Chinese value has undergone an earth-shaking change by western consumerism
