"a war symphony" by chen li

兵” (bing) signifies a soldier. “乒” (ping) and “乓” (pong) are onomatopoeias that sound like gunshots but look like one-armed or one-legged soldiers; when combined, they are associated with ping-pong (table tennis). “丘” (qiu), meaning small hill, has the implication of “tomb.” [source]
