Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a unique form of calligraphy. It's a Chinese character that is made to look like an actual figure. In this case, a person carrying a "bag of plenty" because good fortune has come their way.
The large character is also a representation of "fu" which means good luck and good fortune in Chinese. Below that is a title "fu shou shuang quan" which basically means "may your good fortune and longevity be doubled". This is a common wish offered or given to older people in China.
Here's Sandy holding a tiger special Asian calligraphy wall scroll. As you can see, it's a nice large-sized wall scroll that will look great in your home.
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).
