Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
Please note that I have slightly discounted this scroll because of a very minor paper artifact - it's just part of the nature of handmade paper, and is therefore not a true flaw.
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".
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).
