The Good Fortune Peony – a Chinese Painting Demo by Henry Li

Wednesday, December 21st, 2011

top chinese painting Along with the plum blossom, peony is a traditional floral symbol of China, where the tree peony(Paeonia suffruticosa) is called 牡丹 (mǔdān). The peony flower is also known as 富贵花 (fùguìhuā) “flower of riches and honour,” and is used symbolically in Chinese art. The inscription on this painting is written in the Han seal script:
宜富当贵(Yi-fu-dang-gui)meaning “youdeserve to be rich and honour.”
