This is a classical scene from the Wu Xia (martial art) films of 1970s “Holy Flame of the Martial World”. Two fighters fought each other with their weapons “Holy Flame” which suddenly rose to the sky. The “Holy Flame” moved and attacked each other with power and light came from the fighters’ hands: brighter means stronger.

The weapon shows the relationship of light and power and represents the imagination of the Chinese who tries to visualize the invisible spirit in Chinese culture.
