Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This wall scroll features Warrior Saint Guan Gong (Guan Yu) in the foreground. At the right is Zhang Fei. To the left is Liu Bei. Together, these famous men are known as the Three Brothers of the three kingdoms period - actually more from the mythical novel Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
This wall scroll is designed to have a classic look (like an antique). There are some dark and light spots in the tea-stained paper. These spots add to the antique look, so I'm not counting them as a blemish.
It should be noted that this is a "partial print". The black detailed lines were printed on the special handmade paper. We don't do a lot of partial prints like this, but many people kept requesting antique-styled wall scrolls. I finally picked some up on my last trip.
The use of the printing process for this artwork keeps the price of the artwork affordable (it would be more than 3 times more if this was 100% hand-painted). All of the colored portions are hand-painted.

Gary's random little things about China:
If you order Peking Roast Duck, you should do so only in Beijing, China (anywhere else, it's just not the same).
A hot tip: Always ask how long it will take before the duck is served.
If they tell you any timeframe less than 30 minutes, change your mind and order the Kung Pao Chicken (Gong Bao Ji Ding) instead.
The reason: If they can serve Beijing Roast Duck in less than 30 minutes, that means you are getting "pre-cooked" duck.
If you have to "duck the duck", next time look for a restaurant with ducks hanging over an open wood fire.
