This depicts the Happy Buddha. The actual title in Chinese is "Chang Le Tu", which literally means "Longtime Happiness Painting". It's a good luck title that suggests this painting will bring great happiness to you.
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.
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.
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.
You won't be disappointed if you become the owner of this work of art. I guarantee it personally or your money back.
The artist's name is (Qing Jing-Bin). He was born in Guanxi Province (southern China). His specialty is paintings of mythological and historical figures of ancient China.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.
In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
