Wing Chun Sticking Hands

A sculpture in deep relief carved and painted by Lu Kesi. Commissioned by Kevin Myers, who practiced the Chinese martial art of Wing Chun. Adapted from the logo for the Wing Chun Society of Oregon, also created by Lu Kesi.

Kevin’s Wing Chun instructor was from Hong Kong and couldn’t pronounce his name correctly; the closest he could come to Kevin was “Calvin”—which made Kevin laugh. A long-time friend of the artist, he passed away at an early age from cancer and the family returned the piece to the artist.
