Tiger 24 - Art by River Han printed on Bamboo Fine Art Paper
Tigers enjoying a dip in the pond, Chinese Brush Painting and Calligraphy by River Han printed on Giclée Hahnemühle Bamboo.
This is a scene I captured during my visit to Siberia Tiger Park in Haerbin, China. It was painted as an artist view of the tigers in the nature habitat.
The calligraphy 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:
Posture of mighty and majestic showing through marshland
Relax to fully enjoy a swim in the deep pond
The couple of tigers staying close to each other
Like picture of mandarin duck (metaphor of love-birds) in dream land
Reflecting the beautiful image of romantic relationship in the courting season of spring
This painting was created in the autumn of 2010
