Xi Jing is willing to use the nature of object itself to create a sense of absurdity in her works. Absurdity is her main cognition of the world. In this work, the "candle made of ice" itself is a kind of contradiction, which has been predicted before the candle is lit. But the object has its own persistence——fire will not stop burning, and the ice will not melt immediately, so the two things will inevitably meet and the conflict will inevitably arise. People may be able to predict the outcome beforehand if it is the case of object, but if in the case of human, can we also do the prediction?
