Remarks:
This is my 792nd painting since 2003and the 432nd Chinese Xieyi Painting, the 1857th assignment that I have completed in Chinese National Academy of Arts .

This is the 10th 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 果乏憤毆呟匂 -- Cai Shun Shi Shen Yi Qi -- Cai Shun Picked up Mulberries and Put Them into Different Baskets.

Cai Shun lived in Runan (in today's Henan Province) Han Dynastry (206 BC - 221). When he was young, his father was dead, he treated his mother very well.

It was just the times that Rebellion of Wang Meng and met the famine, food was too expensive to buy, so that he had to pick up the mulberries as food.

One day, when Cai Shun was picking up the mulberries, met some soldiers of the rebel army. They asked him why put the mulberries into two different baskets? Cai Shun answered: "The black (ripened) mulberries will be supplied to my mother to eat, the red (unripe) mulberries for myself."

The soldiers commiserated his filial piety, and sent him two bushels of rice and one of beef feet, to express their respect to Cai Shun.

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