Longevity / Long Life

Longevity / Long Life Special Calligraphy Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

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 "shou" which means longevity and long life in Chinese. Written in smaller characters is the title "shou bi nan shan" which basically means "May your life be as tall as South Mountain". In this case, "South Mountain" is a place were all the fairies and gods like in Chinese mythology. The beings of the legendary South Mountain live forever.

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).
