Guan Gong Warrior Saint

Guan Gong - Chinese Saint of Soldiers Wall Scroll close up view

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

This warrior's name is 關 公 or Guan Gong (at least that is what his friends call him). He was born with the name Guan Yu, but he earned the name "Gong" which is used to refer to a most respected person (You could also translate "Gong" as "Duke" in old English).

Much as Confucius is seen in China as the Saint of Philosophy, Guan Gong is known as the Saint of War.

He is known for not only for his status as a great warrior, but also being full of wisdom and knowledge.

He is the essence of what Chinese people call 勇 or "yong" which means brave, courageous, and not afraid of difficulty.

Note: Along with the title, date, and artist's signature, this artwork contains a Chinese poem of sorts about Guan Gong's high esteem and abilities in both civil and military matters.

Please note that the xuan paper used for the painting on this wall scroll may have some embedded fibers, husks, or specks. This is not a defect, but a natural part of this handmade paper.



Sandy holding a Jin Bin Guan Gong wall scroll

Here is Sandy holding a different wall scroll by Jin Bin. This one is actually about 122cm or 48" long (smaller than most of the Jin Bin wall scrolls we sell). Even in this smaller size, it shows you how big these handmade wall scrolls are.

About the Art...

This is a very detailed painting that is mounted to a silk wall scroll. A lot of work went into this. It actually takes the artist about a half day to complete.

You won't be disappointed if you become the owner of this work of art. I guarantee it personally or your money back.

Gary's random little things about China:

I pee freely:

If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.

In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
