Deng Shi Ru

邓石如 Deng Shi Ru



zi: Wan Bo


A calligrapher of the Qing dynasty, Deng is especially famous for his seal characters, a style of Chinese calligraphy used on seals. Shi (stone) Ru (look like) means "like a stone".  Wan (to be stubborn or headstrong) Bo (a term of respect used to address old men) denotes a stubborn old fogy, and suggests a self-deprecating sense of humour. Both names reflect the indomitable character of Deng, an artist who refused to pander to the whims of the public.
