    About

    The impression shows a lotus flower in dark pink and a bird sitting on a lotus pod trying to pick its seeds. ‘Lotus’ (lian) puns with ‘successive’ (lian); its ‘seeds’ (zi) are homophone with ‘son’ (zi). This alludes to the saying, ‘May you have a succession of sons’ (Liansheng guizi). The image is impressed in fresh, bright colours and bears a poetic inscription on the upper part that is signed ‘Mr Liangxian’. The sheet belongs to a group of prints manufactured by the Ding clan in Suzhou that show subject matter such as flower baskets, fruit dishes, flowering branches, plants and birds, and antiquities. Prints of this type seem also to have appealed to foreigners and are found in eighteenth-century European collections. No such print is presently known to be preserved in China.
