“Jade Mountain Illustrating the Gathering of Scholars at the Lanting Pavillion, 1784.
Unknown Artist. China.” Can you imagine the amount of work that went into something
And for the only recognition to be “unknown artist.”
Oh, I can’t imagine this person cared about credit.
Just because it was hundreds of years ago doesn’t mean the artist wouldn’t want
recognition. That sort of thing has been a goal as long as there have been humans. And
artists are the worst of all.
Its just hard for me to imagine the person who made this doing it for something as petty as
personal gain. It just looks like too much work for that. The hours and hours of work
carving into jade. Feels like it’s almost religious or something. What do you think Sandra?
...and she’s glued to her phone.
“The theme represented on this jade boulder, the largest piece of jade carving outside of
China, refers to an event that occurred on March 3 in the lunar calendar of-” blah blah blah.
“41 renowned scholars and officials, gathered at Lanting or Orchid Pavilion in Shaoxing...
celebrating the Spring Purification Festival...” Here we go! “The scholars engaged in a
drinking contest: Wine cups were floated down a small winding creek as the men sat along
its banks; whenever a cup stopped, the man closest to the cup was required to empty it and
write a poem. In the end, 26 of the participants composed 37 poems.”
Sounds like my kind of gathering.
Maybe we should try that at supper tonight.
Complain all you want about my phone, it has its uses.
