Remarks:
This is my 799th painting since 2003and the 439th Chinese Xieyi Painting, the 194th assignment that I have completed in Chinese National Academy of Arts .

This is the 18th painting that I painted for the series stories and my long scrollゞ屈噴膨丐〃: Er Shi Si Xiao Tu -- The Twenty-Four Dutiful Children .

This story names 遜示山蛉凖牌: Lu Ji Carried the Oranges for His Mother.

Lu Ji was from Wu County (in today¨s Suzhou), lived in the Eastern Han Dynasty (25-220). When he was 6 years old, he followed his father to visit Yuan Shu who was a general in Jiujiang ( in Today¨s Jiangxi Province), Yuan Shu treated them with oranges, Lu Ji carried two oranges into his bosom. When he would go back with making a profound curtsey, the two oranges slid down the floor. Yuan Shu laughed at him: You came to my home to see me, would you still carry the host¨s oranges? Lu Ji answered: My mother enjoyed eating orange, I wanted to carry them and to send her to taste.

Yuan Shao was quite surprised when he found that Luji had known how to filial to his mother at so young age.

Lu Ji he was erudite and talent when he grew up, he was familiar with astronomy, calendar calculation, and he make Hui Tian Tu -- Sky Map, made note on Yi Jing C Book of Changes, and wrote Tai Xuan Jing Zhu C Made Comments for Tai Xuan Jing.

How do you think of this painting and this story? Do you enjoy them?
