Painting with tiger and angry man...


Recommended Posts

Picture of 钟馗 (a traditional Chinese god) subduing a tiger.

The text:

钟馗  (name of the god)

诚既勇兮又以武  终刚强兮不可凌
身既死兮神以灵  魂魄毅兮为鬼雄
(Part of a poem 《九歌·国殇》 by Qu Yuan 屈原(~300 BC), mourning the fallen soldiers of his nation).
丙辰年之秋德元写于成都之西郊 (Written by Deyuan in the fall of 1976 (or 1916) in the western countryside of Chengdu).
