Product Description

This Chinese artwork offers two forms of artistry--poetry and painting. Poems and paintings have been correlated for a long time in China. A northern landscape painter by the name of Kuo Hsi said it best, "Poetry is painting without form, painting is poetry with form." So this means that together, the two bring completeness. In China, poets learned calligraphy to help enhance and create interesting content. This is an art form of painting and poetry, just like with this poetry piece. Calligraphy is considered to be superior art work in China. You can find it throughout history and will even see pieces hanging up in museums. It has definitely been around for a long time. If you enjoy Asian poetry and calligraphy artwork, then you will find this piece to be quite delightful. The hand painting is on gold leaf paper that's wrapped in silk. It is 36 inches tall and 72 inches wide. The frame is made up of lacquered wood. You can either hang this masterpiece on a wall, using the lacquered brass geometric hanger that is comes with, or you can use it as a screen, setting it on a table or on the floor. You can use it for privacy or outdoor or indoor decor.

Each Chinese silk painting is hand-painted on gold leaf silk-covered paper in the brush art style from the Song Dynasty of the 10th century in China. The paper is glued onto the four lacquered wood frames that make up each painting. A matted Chinese silk brocade border is crafted into every painting for a beautiful look. Our Chinese silk paintings are easy to hang, as they include lacquered brass geometric hangers. These stunning paintings can be used as a privacy screen or as an upright art piece (partly folded on a floor or table). Additionally, they may be easily mounted to any wall for attractive Asian inspired decor.

Translation of Poem:
  • 1. Our soldiers go a long way to protect the territory left by our ancestors. They never allow the invading horses to go across the Yin Mountain.
  • 2. Former friends say goodbye at the Yellow Crane Building and go west to Yangzhou in the beautiful blue sky of March.
  • 3. A lonely city sitting on a mountain thousands of meters high watch as the Yellow River goes farther and farther into the white clouds.
  • 4. Smell the flowers and enjoy the clouds of the peaceful countryside life.
