Tian Di Ru Xiong Yi
Wen Zhang Sheng Feng Lei

Heaven Earth Enter Pearl Breast
Essay Makes Wind Thunder

More Felicitously (perhaps; my translation):

Calligraphy by Xue Song, “The Sky and the Earth”, on a canvas made from leftover scraps of his burned out gallery in Beijing, and the paint made from the ashes. Purchased at Zee Stone Galleries, May 2004.
