More about this print: Zi Fang (Zhang Liang) was a hero of the wars which led to the establishment of the Han dynasty in China in around 200 BC. According to one version of the story, Zhang Liang climbed Mount Ji Ming on the eve of the decisive battle, and played the flute so beautifully that the enemy soldiers became homesick. They fled their camp in large numbers, leaving their commander no other option than to commit suicide.
