Kolkata, Aug. 9 : A Chinese artist in Kolkata has brought alive the spirit of the Olympics here through paintings made by his palms and fingers.
Fifty-six-year-old Guan Yaojiu paints mountains using his palms and finger instead of paint brushes.
He has dedicated this palm art piece to the ongoing Olympic Games in Beijing.
Yaojiu also makes dragons, which are revered by the Chinese, with the help of fine Chinese brushes.
Yaojiu uses his palm swiftly to bring about clarity on the canvas.
For his mountain paintings Yaojiu usually uses black, but adds shades of brown and green to some of his works.
