主旨: 百寿图Bai Shou Tu

Mr. Lian in China sent me this work of seals carved and composed by him
through disciples Li Ku and Xiao Yan's help.
透过弟子离苦和晓艳的帮助,在中国的廉先生寄给我由他雕刻及设计的印章。

The whole image is a Chinese character Shou (Longevity), and it consists of
100 seal of variations of how the character Shou can be written in some
ancient style.
整幅图像是汉字「寿」(长寿),而它是由100个「寿」字在某种古代的文体中的变形印所组成。

He also wrote in Chinese an explanation on the making of this work which
took him several months.

Today, May 6, is Buddha's birthday here in USA, so I hang it up in
celebration of Buddha's birthday, and to pray for the longevity of Dharma.
