Lyn’s Modelling Workshop

No signage, no so-called official website, even no personal business card, we first got to know about Mr. Lyn and his modeling workshop by word of mouth too.  Since then he has made models for most of our stone statues, carvings and sculptures.

Statue of Mister 4 Knows, Guan-xi Conficius erected 清官典范东汉杨震石雕像落成了

安腾龙西201805251

Anyone knows some of this old gentleman of ancient China of between the 1st and 2nd century? His name was Bo-qi YANG Zhen, a well-learned scholar who went on to become Tai-Wei, almost the highest-ranking official in charge of military affairs in his dynasty of East Han.

 

SHANG SHU Statue YANG Zhen 20180526

He has been known to the world as “ Guan-xi Confucius” and “ Mister of Four Knows”.

Statue YANG Zhen 2018052832

“Guan-xi”, sounds like Japan’s Kansai, here meant west of the pass of TONG GUAN between Central China’s Henan and Northwest China’s Shanxi in today, where YANG Zhen grew up and spent most of his life as a teacher. He had frequently refused to become ennobled until at age 50.

And “Four Knows” refers to heaven knows, gods know, I know and you know. It’s said when YANG Zhen passed by a county on the way to his new post, the head came and gave him a bag of gold to say thank you for recommendation of the year and saying in this room there were only you and me, none knew it. OK, you have already known what YANG Zhen replied then. It came the good name of “Mister Four Knows” as a model of a clean and honest official.

On the 4.1 meters high steles full of Chinese characters, actually they are all the same word of “clean” in different writing styles.

The 4.37 meters high statue of YANG Zhen was finished on this May 26th in our Chongwu-based carving factory and installed in Nan’an in east China’s Fujian, where YANG’S descendants moved and settled.

The material of statue is Granite G#654 and the base is rusty yellow stone.
