Feng Zizhen 冯子振 (1257-1327)
Feng Zizhen was born in Xiaoxian, Hunan Province in south-central China. He is also know by his designated name Haisu 海粟.
This scroll was completed in 1327 in the fourth year of the reign of Emperor Taiding. He was 70 years old. Later in life he began to
follow Chan Buddhism and through that became acquainted with many followers and monks from Japan. His calligraphy had a
strong influence not only in China but also in Japan. The next two slides provide different views of the same scroll.
