Peace / Harmony Wall Scroll

Peace / Harmony Special Calligraphy Wall Scroll close up view

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

This is a very unique form of calligraphy. It's a Chinese character that is made to look like an actual figure. In this case, an older man with a wispy beard holding a peach. Note that a peach is also a symbol of longevity in Chinese culture.

The large character is also a representation of "he" which means peace and harmony in Chinese. Written in smaller characters is the title "jia he wan she xing" which basically means "May peace and harmony come to your family and home and may all things be prosperous for you".

About the Artist...

This was painted by a very shy artist named Ye Ying-Xing from near Guilin, China. I asked if I could take his picture, but he politely refused with a gesture of modesty. He does not seek fame, and in another gesture of Chinese modesty, he insulted his own artwork, saying that it was not good enough to make such a fuss over.

I think the artwork is worthy, and offers a unique and different style that most people in the west have never seen before (it's even rare in China).

Gary's random little things about China:

Crossing the Street: Human Frogger in China

If you are from my generation, you may remember the video game called "Frogger". It involved crossing a busy road while narrowly dodging cars and truck, often both in front of and behind you at the same time.

Well you can play real live Frogger every time you cross the street in China. It is perfectly normal to cross a four or six-lane road, one lane at a time. You stand motionless on the white, dashed line between lanes as cars and trucks whiz by you on both sides with only inches to spare. When the next lane is clear, you advance (there is no retreat in this game, that could get you killed, since drivers in China would never expect that).

If you did this in America, drivers would come to a screeching halt and think you were crazy (they might even tell you so, using colorful words and hand gestures). It is simply a different culture, or rather a different way of doing things in modern Chinese culture.
