DESCRIPTION:

這一篇以黃庭堅的《清平樂》為主線,重點在於兩句:「若有人知春去處,喚取歸來同住」,意謂人皆偏愛春和日麗,走起路來地格外帶勁,猶似圖中的先生 (人本位)和狐狸(獸性的象徵符號),這一位四眼紳士為求朝晚逢春,不惜把歌聲婉轉的小鳥玩弄掌上,期待欣然暢快終日源源不斷。

A poem by Huang Tingjian reads, "If someone knows the whereabouts of spring, please bring it back". People yearn for nice, sunny days, and they walk lively, with spring in their steps, just like the gentleman and Mr. Fox (symbolic of man's beastly nature) here in this scene. To ensure that the feeling and excitement of the season is always with him, the gentleman carries his birdie with him wherever he goes.
