Information about how this Asian painting is mounted

Tiger

Chinese Calligraphy Portrait

This Chinese character is "hu" which means tiger.

In Mandarin Chinese this word is pronounced kind of like the English word "who".

In Chinese culture, the tiger is seen as the king of all animals.

Proof of this can be found by looking at another character "wang" which is written like this...
Tiger Wang Symbol

This character means "king".

If you have ever looked at a tiger face to face, you will see the fur on the tiger's head is in a similar shape to this "wang character" - take a look...
Tiger Wang Symbol
If you aren't Chinese, it might take a little imagination to see the symbol on the tiger's head, but anyone who speaks and writes Chinese will tell you that it's true.

This is a great gift for a real tiger-lover

About the materials and construction of this painting:

The calligraphy was done using black Chinese ink on xuan paper (known incorrectly in the west as "rice paper"). The raw artwork was then taken to our Wall Scroll Workshop where it was laminated to more sheets of xuan paper, and built into a beautiful portrait with silk brocade border.


About the artist:

This calligraphy was created by Li Dan-Qing of Beijing. He's an older gentleman who has been involved with the art community of China, all of his life. Now in retirement, he creates calligraphy for us for sort of "hobby income".
