Abstract:
This is Mr Chew’s original handwritten work. After receiving a photography collection by Mr Wu Bing Cheng, Mr Chew was so impressed that he wrote a couplet based on the name of the photographer—Bing Cheng. In the form of a traditional couplet, Mr Chew had intentionally avoided to adhere to the strict traditional ping ze (levels of the tones) and dui ou (coupling structure). As a manuscript stamped with a red seal, this piece is valuable not only because it is handwritten, but also because it allows the reader to see the genre-flexibility of the author in his literary pursuits.
