Guan Gong Warrior Saint

Guan Gong - Saint of Soldiers - Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This warrior's name is 關 公 or Guan Gong (at least that is what his friends call him). He was born with the name Guan Yu, but he earned the name "Gong" which is used to refer to a most respected person (You could also translate "Gong" as "Duke" in old English).

Much as Confucius is seen in China as the Saint of Philosophy, Guan Gong is known as the Saint of War.

He is known for not only for his status as a great warrior, but also being full of wisdom and knowledge.

He is the essence of what Chinese people call 勇 or "yong" which means brave, courageous, and not afraid of difficulty.

Note: Along with the title, date, and artist's signature, this artwork contains a Chinese poem of sorts about Guan Gong's high esteem and abilities in both civil and military matters.

About the Art...

You won't be disappointed if you become the owner of this work of art. I guarantee it personally or your money back.

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my soy sauce?

When you sit down to eat at a restaurant in China, you will almost never see a bottle of soy sauce on the table like you might at a Chinese restaurant in the USA or UK.
In Chinese cooking culture, soy sauce is a seasoning reserved for use in the kitchen.
The fact that soy sauce can be found at Chinese restaurants outside of China probably comes from the confusion between Japanese food and Chinese food.
The most popular Japanese food outside of Japan is sushi, which of course is always served with soy sauce and is the most likely cause of the confusion.
