Chinese ink & pigment painting on High quality Raw Xuan paper
Inspired by poet Linpu's (林逋 of Song dynasty) poem"The Little Plum Blossom of Hill Garden" (山園小梅).
"Their scattered shadows fall lightly on clear water, their subtle scent pervades the moonlight dusk."
The plum blossom is seen as a symbol of winter and a harbinger of spring symbolise perseverance and hope, as well as beauty, purity, and the transitions of life.
In Confucianism, the plum blossom stands for the principles and values of virtue.
In Chinese art, the Four Gentlemen or Four Virtuous Ones, is a collective term referring to four plants: the plum blossom, the orchid, the bamboo, and the chrysanthemum. The term compares the four plants to Confucian Junzi, or "gentlemen" who has high standard of moral and ethics.
I believe this subtle will add its mysterious oriental beauty while harmony, calmness and peace to any room in your home. This is NOT a print or a reproduction, this is my original artwork.
