Una nueva compañera, la flauta tranversal china llamada Qudí. En C. Obra del artesano Dong Xue Hua en Hangzhou, China. Un hermoso trabajo.
El poema grabado en dorado dice:
For Hua Qing
In Brocade City, strings and winds sound in profusion every day.
Half enters the river breezes, half enters the clouds.
Such music is fit only for the heavens above--
In this world, how often can it be heard?
--Du Fu (712-770)
Note: Brocade City=Chengdu, Sichuan, which was famous for the production of silk. Hua Qing was an official in Chengdu and a friend of Du Fu. Here the poet is gently suggesting that Hua Qing not spend his funds so extravagantly.
