Tigers and Eagle - Art by River Han
King of the sky looking over fight between kings of the land. Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy by River Han printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Bamboo.
The calligraphy for the title was written in special Li Shu style (隸書), popular in Han dynasty. The calligraphy for the poem was written in semi-cursive script style (行書).
I am including the typed Chinese characters in the calligraphy for reference.
Below is my translation:
Title: Eagle spreading its wings and tigers demonstrating awe-inspiring power
Cloud flying, sword dancing, with majestic image spreading across thousands of miles
Lightning flashed, followed by thunderous sound, shaking the atmosphere around the pathway
Creating waves in water like monster sea serpents
All attention were focused on the fight over leadership on land
This painting was created in autumn of 2010
