Mah Jongg maven and collector extraordinaire – and wonderful friend – Katherine Hartman found this fabulous print in the UK. Here we see The Eight Immortals enjoying a serious game of Mah Jongg. Read on to learn about it…
Here is what Katherine had to say about it:
The Eight Immortals playing mahjong. So happy to have found this wonderful print! This is a portion of a large print purchased from someone in the UK. There are a lot of Chinese characters on the lower portion of the print (not shown in these images). The print is also signed with a stamp. I do see a nice birdy bam in there. List of immortals; He Xiangu, Cao Guojiu, Tieguai Li, Lan Caihe, Lü Dongbin, Han Xiang Zi, Zhang Guo Lao, and Zhongli Quan.
