Dancing on the edge sumi-e painting
Designed by Umi-ko
Wild orchid is one of the “four gentlemen” of oriental art, and thus one of the most important themes, which symbolizes spring and gentle femininity. However, it often puzzles non-Asian art students as this orchid, seen in the classical Chinese and Japanese works looks unfamiliar, not like an orchid at all. Still, this is an orchid, one of the oldest species, found in China and admired by Confucius himself. Unlike many other orchid kinds it grows on earth and rocks, often on river banks. It’s leafs and petals are long and narrow, flowers are often pale white. (If you are a scientific kind, you can look it up by the name Cymbidium ensifolium :) So you have it, a most elegant and delicate symbol of femininity, calm and soft as moonlight, but lively, almost dancing on a brink. Stamp featured on the painting is the author’s “signature”, carved in tensho calligraphy characters. The style used is also known as sumi-e and suibokuga. Materials used: rice paper, Chinese black dry ink and animal hair brush.

Shirt came quickly (I did pay extra for the quickest delievry but it wasn’t that much more so it was definitely worth it!!), print exactly like what was online, came with instructions on how to care for the top, a cool RedBubble sticker, and the fit (I got large) was perfect for the oversized look I was going for. All in all very impressed and would highly recommend to everyone!!!
