This is an illustration of the scene that starts on page 218 and ends on 219. The aunt is standing in the doorway with An-mei's crying brother while An-mei goes to her mother. I think the blurred and vague lines help show the reader that this scene is a memory. As An-mei is leaving her uncle says, "she is already changed"(219). The people in this picture show the change physically. The aunt, uncle and brother all appear to be connected to the house. Their defining lines run into that of the house. In contrast, An-mei and her mother are drawn with darker, bolder and detached lines.
