washing tea leaves (Wuhan, China)
ink on paper (acid-free heavy cartridge, 130 gsm)
10.5 x 22 cm (with mounting/matte frame: 21.5 x 30 cm)
Black and white ink drawing of worker washing tea leaves. From our China tour a couple years ago; we had an hour or so at a tea plantation for some lunch, and this man was demonstrating the traditional process for washing tea, scooping and swirling the leaves in a large copper basin in a meditative motion, almost a dance – before the leaves are swooshed out in big handfuls to the shallow woven baskets to dry/cure.
This item is matted/mounted in heavy-weight card frame and ready for a display/gallery frame of your choosing.
