The Chinese Pipa
Yesterday's post about the theft of two Qing Dynasty artifacts (scroll down or CLICK) reminded me of this beautiful digital artwork by May Fong: Poetic Melody (2011). It shows Crystal Liu playing a pipa, a four-stringed Chinese lute with over 2000 years of history. The picture was created from a reference photo using Photoshop and a Wacom tablet.
