A cold front brought down the temperature in Huaian to -5℃, however, calligrapher Liu Wenbin could not feel the chill as he was immersed in the excitement of his latest work.
To mark the 120th birth anniversary of late Premier Zhou Enlai, which falls on Mar. 5, 2018, Liu Wenbin made a 120-meter-scroll, featuring over 80 poems made for Zhou.
The calligraphy scroll is to be framed and waiting to be exhibited.
A number of activities are to be held to commemorate Zhou Enlai. Yu Jiaguo, a farmer and painter in Huaian, has created a series of paintings featuring Zhou, which are to be on a nationwide tour together with Liu’s scroll.
