Chinese brush painting has 1,300 years of history. A few days ago I visited 93 Painting, a brush painting shop in an antique market. Mr.Zhang, the owner of the shop, kindly received me. He told me that his shop had collected many famous artists' paintings.
A painting named De Tao Tu is a good gift for friends and family. It featured a monkey playing with six peaches. The monkey was depicted so vividly that I could clearly see its hair. In Chinese culture, peaches symbolize longevity.
Another painting depicting five cabbages was also appealing. It was painted by a famous painter from the 1950s. Cabbages represent purity and being a good government official.
93 Painting also features beautiful porcelains and woodcarvings. In one corner of the shop stood a statue of Kwan-yin. It was carved in a precious Huangyang wood.
