A Folktale

A Folktale

Man Lung Fung Ancestral Hall, Hong Kong

These hundreds-year-old wooden boards were carved with a folktale "Li Bai, the Drunken Poet".

Li Bai (701-761) was one of two greatest poets in China's literary history.
He once was ordered by the emperor to the palace, he was drunk,
but he improvised on the spot and produced fascinating love poems.
