款识/ Inscription: 尧己未初冬写十二生肖之午 Painted in early winter of 1979 as part of the Zodiac series. 关于此画：此画是十二生肖系列之一，特为马年而画。黄尧选了以下关于马的故事作为画的主题： 伯乐是春秋时代人。据说，有一匹千里马拉着沉重的盐车翻越太行山。在羊肠小道上，马蹄用力挣扎，膝盖跪屈；尾巴下垂着，皮肤也受了伤；浑身冒汗，汗水淋漓，在山坡上艰难吃力地爬行还是拉不上去，伯乐遇见了，就下了自己的车，挽住千里马而对它淌眼泪，并脱下自己的麻布衣服覆盖在千里马身上。千里马于是低下头吐气，抬起头来长鸣，嘶叫声直达云霄。这是它感激伯乐了解并且体贴它啊。 About this Painting: This painting was specially painted for the year of the horse as part of the Chinese Zodiac series. Instead of just a horse, Huang Yao chose the story below about horse to paint: A horse trader was trying to sell his ‘thousand mile horse’, which can run fast and long, but without much success. He asked for the help of Bo Le, who was famous for his love of horses and his ability to pick exceptional horses. Bo Le came and indeed it was a ‘thousand mile horse’. All he did was to walk around the horse slowly, examining it carefully with his eyes. Then he walked away but looking back repeatedly. The horse was sold immediately at a price the trader could not refuse. Huang Yao’s Bo Le has his thumbs up for the horse. 黄尧曰: 有自己喜欢的书画伴在左右，是一件「悦目赏心」的事。有了这种书画的精神享受，就是神有所凝，虽未入「仙境」，已可到「忘我」的地步，这是「益寿」之道。 Quote by Huang Yao: In the company of your favourite paintings, they are a delight and pleasing to the eye. This type of enjoyment through paintings, one’s mind is in a mindful state, although you may not be in celestial realm, you will experience being present and this is path to longevity.
