Chinese New Year, traditionally called Spring Festival, is just around the corner. It’s time to celebrate with happy music .. family gatherings .. tables overflowing with food and drinks ..
I look at the beautiful painting above and I’m drawn to the exquisite loveliness of the figures. Olive skins. Refined eyes exuding mystery and seductiveness. Imposing attractiveness resplendent in an aura of purity and pristineness. Divine paradise on earth.
A detail I have always noticed about facial features in traditional Chinese paintings is: They all have beautiful high foreheads. They are considered a thing of beauty. I had always thought that a bigger forehead contains a larger amount of brains! 😀 I later learnt from reading Chinese “face-reading” analysises that a forehead that is wide, round and shinning speaks of a good family inheritance, a comfortable upbringing and early achievement.
This is a very well-known and admired ancient Chinese painting of a Taoist Immortal – he has an amazingly high forehead too! 😯
Yes, yes, I know. You know. We all know. All thoughts and words lead to talking about one named David Archuleta. 😀 This wonderful capture below reminds me of one of my favourite things about David’s face – his forehead. Someone should REALLY REALLY tell him to brush his hair back like this and reveal his very alluring forehead! A little “hangie-down” is also welcome (See pic in previous post)
HAPPY SPRING FESTIVAL, EVERYONE !!
PS: Just read David’s tweet: Nashville, it’s been a while. Good to be back home.
(Y E S !!! NEW MUSIC!! 😈 )
