Guan Gong Warrior Saint

Guan Gong Saint of All Warriors Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the warrior 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.

Please note that the xuan paper used for the painting on this wall scroll may have some embedded fibers, husks, or specks. This is not a defect, but a natural part of this handmade paper.



Sandy holding a Jin Bin Guan Gong wall scroll

Here is Sandy holding a different wall scroll by Jin Bin. This one is actually about 122cm or 48" long (smaller than most of the Jin Bin wall scrolls we sell). Even in this smaller size, it shows you how big these handmade wall scrolls are.

About the Art...

This is a very detailed painting that is mounted to a silk wall scroll. A lot of work went into this. It actually takes the artist about a half day to complete.

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 westerner 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. This is the most likely reason that soy sauce migrated out of the kitchen on onto the table at your Chinese restaurant in the west.
