Tiger 25 - Art by River Han
Tigers Courtship - Having Fun in Water. 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:
Title: Tiger Couple Enjoy Playing In Water
Cloud blowing my brush to create mighty tigers
Wind turning my ink into lively water dragons
Hear the long roar breaking silence and bring in the fierce
No one would dare to disturb the kings in their kingdom
This painting was created in autumn of 2010
