Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This depicts an old man enjoying a fishing trip. The old man's name is Jiang Ziya sometimes known as Jiang Tai Gong of the famous idiom.
Jiang Tai Gong was famous for not putting bait on his hook, and saying, "I only wish to catch fish who want to be caught". He did not believe in using forceful methods, and instead wanted nature to take its course.
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.
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.
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.
