Goddess & Chinese Dragon Wall Art Scroll Painting
About this item
Bring the rich cultural heritage of ancient China into your home with this gorgeous hand-painted scroll. This elegant work of art features a beautiful goddess gliding through the clouds while plucking an ancient harp astride a mighty Chinese dragon. The flowing robes worn by this graceful deity depict traditional Tang Dynasty attire. The artist's skill shows in the soft blend of striking shades, the extraordinary balance between hard lines and soft textures and the bold yet gentle portrayal of the dragon's movement. The swirling clouds, fluttering cloth and the maiden's delicate features are rendered in the Buddhist style, commonly seen in temple murals and on other sacred artifacts. This piece is bordered with pure white brocade paper that complements the art with its intricately textured patterning. The hand-carved roll bar of black lacquered wood ensures that this piece will lie flat against any vertical surface, while a satiny ribbon affixed to the top edge provides for convenient hanging. This painting represents a prevalent theme in Chinese mythology: men and woman may receive the gift of immortality as a reward for piety, courage, or earthly sacrifice. Delivered to your door in an attractive gift box that prevents scratching and marring, this piece is the perfect gift for friends and loved ones. Measures 48 inches high x 20 inches wide. The handcrafted nature of this item will produce minor differences in design, color and sizing. Subtle variations will occur from piece to piece, adding to the unique quality of individual creations.
