Yellow Mountain Village

Yellow Mountain Village - Chinese Landscape Print Wall Scroll close up view

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

This is a reproduction of an ancient village scene. The place depicted is known as Huang Shan in Chinese. In English, that's "Yellow Mountain".

Even today, tourists flock to Huang Shan for the beautiful view. The area is said to be the inspiration for poetry and artwork spanning a thousand years.

There is also a long ancient poem written along the top of the artwork. Along with that are a series of red chop stamps. These stamps allude to the practice of high-level imperial officers or statesmen stamping artwork that they approved of. Also, various owners of the artwork would put their stamp on it (an original anti-theft device).

The special handmade tea-stained paper gives this a lovely antique look. Even though this is a partial print that is finished with some handwork, each one is unique because of the handwork and mottling in the handmade paper.

Gary's random little things about China:

Where's my soy sauce?

When you sit down to eat at a restaurant in China, you will almost never see a bottle of soy sauce on the table like you might at a Chinese restaurant in the USA or UK.
In Chinese cooking culture, soy sauce is a seasoning reserved for use in the kitchen.
The fact that soy sauce can be found at Chinese restaurants outside of China probably comes from westerner confusion between Japanese food and Chinese food.
The most popular Japanese food outside of Japan is sushi, which of course is always served with soy sauce. This is the most likely reason that soy sauce migrated out of the kitchen on onto the table at your Chinese restaurant in the west.
