Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This depicts some boys enjoying the Chinese zither being played by an elder. The musical instrument is a "qin". It's sometimes called a horizontal harp, or a Chinese zither by westerners. It's really a special Chinese musical instrument that is unique and special (and hard to categorize in western terms).
After the title "Enjoying the Beauty of the Qin", the rest of the Chinese characters indicate the year painted (2008) and the artist's signature.
This was painted by (Shou Shi) from Guilin, China. This artist happens to also be a master calligrapher. Both his calligraphy and artwork are of excellent quality.
He happens to be a friend of artist Ou-Yang Guo-De, and was introduced to me in 2007.
We make our own handmade wall scrolls at our workshop in Beijing. Each one is carefully made with high-quality materials.
