Title: The Root of Qing
Dimension: 47.28 x 70.85 cm
This object is my collection, the bamboo root seal of the Qing Dynasty.
Roots (sections) in printing have already existed since ancient China, and are one of the traditional printing materials. In the Ming and Qing Dynasties, it was especially popular among literati. The artisans carved the entangled bamboo roots in a natural manner and lived harmoniously with the printed body. This design is a reference to the technique of using the "stone eyes" of stones in the "Duan Yan“ to form "bamboo pillars".
This seal happened to be natural, peculiar, quaint, and there was a trace of poverty and arrogance in the thin edge as if I saw the root and integrity of the Qing Dynasty.
