Su Dongpo 蘇東坡

Wikipedia excerpt on Su Dongpo:

“Su Shi (traditional Chinese: 蘇軾; simplified Chinese: 苏轼; pinyin: Sū​ Shì​) (January 8, 1037 – August 24, 1101), was a writer, poet, artist, calligrapher, pharmacologist, gastronome, and statesman of the Song Dynasty, and one of the major poets of the Song era. His courtesy name was Zizhan (子瞻) and his pseudonym was Dongpo Jushi (東坡居士), and he is often referred to as Su Dongpo (蘇東坡). Besides his renowned poetry, his other extant writings are of great value in the understanding of 11th century Chinese travel literature as well as details of the 11th century Chinese iron industry.”

A cute little story…
