Antique Chinese scroll painting of two beautiful birds with brightly colored feathers and long, striped tails, with resemblance to a cockatiel. One runs along the ground, gazing at nearby dandelions, its long tail feather arching gracefully above its body, and one sits perched amidst foliage with its neck feathers blowing in the wind like golden hair. A tall branch extends upwards into the painting, sprouting white peonies and pink chrysanthemums. It is skillfully painted with hints of texture, such as the raised paint in the birds' eyes and the stems of the flowers. Qing Dynasty Size: (painting only) 76" height, 24.25" width (entire scroll) approx. 100" height, 30" width
