Printed with a multitude of plum blossoms, the Yielding Plum Blossom paper appears like a sea of flowers. The beautiful pattern will serve to add a unique and distinctive look to any artwork.
With a distinguished hue, the paper is the color of famille rose. Famille is the French word for families, so famille rose is used to describe a collection that ranges in color from pink to purple. Most often, this term is used when classifying china, or Chinese porcelains.
Physically, the paper is a semi-processed Xuan paper that is absorbent and soft while still being tenacious. This unique combination makes for a versatile paper useful for calligraphy, sumi-e and fineline painting.
The plum blossom (Mei) holds special standing in Chinese culture, particularly when it comes to brushpainting. Plum blossoms, orchids (Lan), bamboo (Zhu) and chrysanthemums (Ju) are collectively known as the Four Gentlemen, and represent great virtue.
Plum Blossoms represent pride. Instead of competing with other flowers, it blooms in the winter. Artists see a reflection of themselves in this representation, and value their moral integrity as they refuse to associate with those who do not respect culture and virtues.
