Part of a series of antique Chinese ink paintings, depicting bamboo in various compositions. 

To quote the Smithsonian Institute: "Bamboo has been depicted in Chinese painting for more than a thousand years. Along with the pine and the plum, bamboo is a member of the Three Friends of Winter for its ability to bear the harshest of winters. It is also one of the Four Gentlemen (the other three being the plum, the orchid, and the chrysanthemum) for the moral virtues it represents. The hollowness of the bamboo stalk symbolizes tolerance and open-mindedness. Its flexibility and strength signify the human values of cultivation and integrity: one yields but does not break. All these virtues make bamboo a very popular subject in Chinese painting, especially among scholar-artists."
