Happy Family - 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 a painting by 唐寅 (Táng Yín). The artist lived during the Ming Dynasty. He was born around 1470 and is believed to have passed on in 1524. He was sometimes known by the honorary name of 唐伯虎 (Tang Bohu). Beyond an artist, he was a scholar, calligrapher, and poet.

I'm still working on putting together more information about the original artwork that is recreated in this reproduction. More to be added later.

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.
