Confucius Giving Lectures under the Apricot Tree


Confucius (551 B.C.-- 479 B.C.) is considered as one of the greatest thinkers, statesmen, educators in ancient China. He is the first man who founded the private education, and originated the theory of “education for all” (or teaching all comers without discrimination), and “teaching students in accordance with their aptitude”. Confucius, himself, is credited by the tradition with having taught three thousand students in total, and seventy-two among them are most famous, called “Seventy-two Sainted Disciples”. And also, ten students are extraordinarily excellent, being called “Kong Men Shi Zhe”(Ten Wise People under Confucius’ Tuition).

In this picture, Confucius is giving lectures under the apricot tree. His disciples are having different thoughts with various expressions.

mandolinartist aka amanda 说...

Awesome art as usual... However, I was surprised at the topic. I thought I read somewhere that you are a Christian, right?

Guilherme Lancastre 说...

Incredible work! A truly masterpiece...
I always appreciated oriental art for its diaphanous beauty and admirable harmony.
I loved thy set that portrays China's scenery.
I'm not Christian ( I'm candomblecist; Candomblè is a Brazilian politeist religion )and I am not very inclined towards Christianism, but I have to confess that thy Bible papercutting works are beautiful too.
Fare thee well!

Alexa Cullen 说...

Fascinated me your work.
