Imperial Scholar Mr. Zhong (鐘進士)

Imperial Scholar Mr. Zhong (鐘進士)

Item Description:

Year: 2019
Materials: Ink and colour on hemp paper


Poem:

The north wind blows the sand into people’s eyes,

and the willow shook and brushed the stream.

The Imperial Scholar rises like a god.

His strange look draws attention:

Some of his teeth were missing.

His belt is fastened in a messy way.

His hat is not worn properly, and his toes are exposed through the boots.

He holds a book of god full of pages, as if he is announcing god’s new year blessing.

With the sound of firecrackers, the spring season has arrived.

I am making this painting of Imperial Scholar Mr. Zhong because he is a saint who brings blessing to the house.

題識款識:

北風吹沙目欲瞇,官柳搖黃拂溪水。

終南進士倔然起,蝟磔於思含缺齒。

袍藍帶角形甚傀,烏帽裹頭靴露指。

白澤在傍口且哆,馴擾不異麟之趾。

手持上帝書滿紙,若曰新歲錫爾祉。

一聲竹爆物盡靡,明日春光萬餘裏。

庚子炎月為鐘進士造像此乃鎮宅賜福之聖人也。
