- DescriptionChina Tales and Stories: Sai Weng Loses a Horse (English Version) Sai Weng Loses a Horse reminds us that things are t always as they seem... The Sai Weng Loses a Horse story is from the Mead-Hill collection, China Tales and Stories. Sai Weng Loses a Horse is a great moral tale, based on the doings of one of the most beloved characters in Chinese literary history. Sai Weng's tale was told and retold so many times that he became almost more famous than a hero - he became almost an archetype. In that way, Sai Weng even became part of China thinking. (For more about that idea, please see Mead-Hill's, China Thinking - An Introduction.) Sai Weng Loses a Horse is published in multiple Mead-Hill editions. Each edition is illustrated by a different artist. Each artist uses a different style of Chinese illustration. Each illustrated set can be collected; the collections can be put together to build a special library of China tales and stories. Sai Weng Loses a Horse is available in multiple Mead-Hill versions. http: //mead-hill.wixsite.com/mead-hill
- Author BiographyILLUSTRATOR Cheng Shibi currently lives in Hengyang, in Central China's Hunan Province. A lifelong reader and teacher, Cheng Shibi is fascinated with Chinese calligraphy and Chinese ink painting. He enjoys doing both of these, especially because of what he calls their mood-adjustment properties! In this book, Cheng Shibi offers something of an innovation on the traditional thickness-and-density-of-ink, and variation-on-brush-stroke system. By adding color to the already warm feelings they create, he renders an effect more universally understandable and more interesting for all.
