Close up view of the warrior artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This warrior's name is 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 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.
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 almost a full 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 Jing Bin. He was born in Guanxi Province (southern China). His specialty is paintings of mythological and historical figures of ancient China.
