Zhong Kui

Zhong Kui is depicted in this painting as a traditional Chinese scholar. He is wearing an official red robe, black gauze official’s hat and is sitting squarely on a large rock with a jade tablet in his hand. A dog is seen at Zhong Kui’s side, which is regarded as a blessed auspicious symbol. Painted using a warm color palette, Zhong Kui is positioned in the center of the painting, and the righteous and evil-warding symbolism of the image is juxtaposed against a backdrop painted using techniques that combine both meticulous gonbi and lyrical brushstrokes.
