Ch: Niaoke.@Lit. bird's nest. A painting subject depicting the Tang dynasty eccentric priest Dourin “¹—Ñ (Ch: Daolin), also called Chouka zenji ’¹‚©‘TŽt (Ch: Niaoke chanshi), lit. Zen master bird's nest, because he often sat atop a tall pine tree. Near Chouka's pine roost at the Hourinzenji –P—Ñ‘TŽ› (Ch: Fenglinchansi) in Hangzhou YB, a magpie built a nest, and thus Chouka also acquired the sobriquet Shaku oshou êF˜a® (Priest Magpie). It is reported that the great Tang poet Bai Letian (Jp: *Haku Rakuten ”’Šy“V, 772-846) once held a dialogue with Chouka while the latter was seated atop his tree. There are well-known pantings of the subject by Sesshuu áM (1420-1506), Shoukei ËŒ[ (late 15c.), and Soutatsu @’B (?-ca.1640; Cleveland Museum).
