Shen Nong, the Divine Farmer

Divine Farmer - Shen Nong - Chinese Wall Scroll close up view

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

This is 李時珍 (Li Shi-Zhen) who is more commonly known by the title 神農 (Shen Nong), the Divine Farmer.

This legendary man is credited with partially inventing and refining Chinese medicine some. Some say he is a figure of Chinese mythology. But many Chinese will insist he was a real man who, after trying many medicinal herbs (and nearly poisoning himself to death on 75 occasions) invented tea as a detoxifying remedy to poison in 2737 BC.

Whether truth, fiction, or a composite of many, he is credited with being the father of eastern medicine thousands of years before western medicine was in its infancy.

Some will refer to this man as "Holy Farmer", "Emperor of the Five Grains" (五穀先帝), and "Medicine King".

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.
