“Naruto Whirlpools” 1935

Hanging scroll, ink and color on paper
74.4 x 87.5 cm. (29 5/8 x 34 1/2 in.)

“In Japan there is a fortress-like pass,
the strait called Naruto;
Each day at noon and midnight
the tide comes like a rushing dragon.
Turning round and round,
it makes a whirlpool;
Blue waves splash white and cold,
pouring down like an overturned plate.
Dangerous and narrow, the boat men lament,
its strangeness requires the soul of a painter;
Climbing high and looking around,
one feels as though in the K’un-lun Mountains.

Master of the Ts’an-chu Retreat, Fang Ming (painted this)
and also inscribed a poem during spring of the year 1935.

Artist’s seal:
Fang Tzu-i Shih
