There are some pieces of art that are created out of the love of pure creation of a work. Then there are some that are born out of the love (or hate) for mankind, the world around the artist, or sometimes their own humanity. The piece I found to share in this post actually does a little of both, as the painting and its motivations are as unique as the painter himself.

The first of my posts on Non-Western traditional art, I found this work sifting through some larger paintings of the Yangtze River. You can thank me later for not posting the Ten Thousand Miles of the Yangtze River, since that probably would crash any computer you’re trying to view it on its so large. Instead, I found a much smaller depiction of the great river in China, painted during the Ming Dynasty, by Wu Wei.
