Orchid blossom scroll
This is an original painting, not a copy!
This painting is part of the plum, orchid, bamboo and chrysanthemum series. These 4 plants are the 'four gentlemen' in Chinese culture. They are much more than symbols for the 4 seasons, they represent the most noble character. Orchid, for instance, stands for purity and humility.
This poem is about the meaning of orchids Even in the depth of a forlorn valley, the orchid exhales its light and beautiful scents. The spring wind slowly carries away the light orchid spring in the valley.
