  • 張大千 初唐藻井 設色絹本 鏡框

    鈐印:大千父、老棄敦煌

    註:一九四一年,張大千遠赴敦煌,閉關精研,得以直窺北魏唐宋之堂奧。莫高窟內燦爛奪目的佛像、飛天、藻飾、樂伎等壁畫和彩塑,以及高古瑰麗的描繪技巧給予他極大的震撼與靈感。凡三易寒暑,殫精竭力,大千帶隊完成了石窟編號,並臨摹了二百餘幅壁畫。本幅所臨應為莫高窟第三二九窟初唐「飛天蓮花紋藻井」。

    「窟頂是蓮花飛天藻井,它是莫高窟現存最精美的藻井壁畫之一,藻井井心以淡藍色作地,象徵天空,中心繪一大朵蓮花。......這朵蓮花,由十四個卷瓣蓮和十四朵卷雲紋相間環繞蓮心而成。中間綠色的圓形內有白色的蓮蓬籽。在青、綠、紅為地色的捲瓣蓮上,白色的短弧線作波形狀排列三圈相互環繞,形成旋轉性的團花中心。外層的捲雲紋則以最亮的白色為主色,輔以青、綠、紅、黃等色,使人觀之猶如蓮花正在旋轉的色輪上放光,色彩絢麗,燦爛奪目。 《華嚴經》說:『蓮花妙寶為瓔珞,處處莊嚴淨無垢,香水澄淳具眾色,寶華旋布放光明......』古代畫師們就是根據經文創造了這些璀璨的蓮花。圍繞著蓮花是四身執花飛天,在藍天的映襯下,長巾飄舉,翱遊曼舞,周圍浮雲流動,似有風在吹拂。井心以外有捲草紋、聯珠紋、垂角紋、帷幄等,顏色有淡紅、深紅、赭石、黃、白、綠、黑等,色彩豐富並且描繪細緻。......在窟內仰看,倍覺富麗堂皇,絢麗多彩,第329窟的藻井是唐代藻井圖案的傑作之一。」
