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, it's a horse being ridden by a cowboy or cowgirl.

The large character is also a representation of "ma" which means horse in Chinese (also used in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja). Below that is a title "ma dao cheng gong" which basically means "Where there are horses, there is success", or "Horses bring success".

About the Artist...

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).
