A celebrated Chinese artist of the 1920′s Huang Erh-nan, painted lotus flowers and butterflies on silk. But it was not the subject matter of his art that made. Huang so unbelievable, it was his technique. Huang Erh-nan used his tongue as a paint brush, and his mouth as the receptacle for black ink.
The Peking artist first filled his maw with the thick ink Oriental artists prefer for their finest work. Then he leaned over the fine silk cloth he had stretched out on a table, and brushed in his paintings – paintings noted for their delicacy and charm.
