Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is a very unique form of calligraphy. In this case, it is two people in love.
This is actually the Chinese character for "sentiment/affection/love/passion" that has been made to look like two people in love. The character is pronounced "qing" (like sounds like "ching") in Mandarin.
Down at the bottom, there is a large inscription that says:
Which basically means "love/passion is priceless".
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).
