'三伏'(Triple Summer / Dog Days) is the hottest 40 days in Chinese twenty-four solar terms.

Walking in streets during this period, you won't have any problem running into a lady chilling in tree shades taking an afternoon nap. Things that are exposed in the sunshine seem soon to be steamed and melted, even the dogs have to get shaved to fight with the hot hot heat.

Art Work & Hand-writing: Gregor Koerting & Nini Sum

4-color hand silk screen print in 115 edition.

A clumsy translation of the poetry in the artwork by IdleBeats:

<何处堪避暑>
<Where to avoid summer heat>

by Bai Juyi (Tang Dynasty 618AD-907AD)
More about the poet: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bai_Juyi

何处堪避暑,
where to avoid summer heat,
林间背日楼。
shady pagoda among the forest.
何处好追凉,
where to chase the coolness,
池上随风舟。
windy canoe in the pond.

日高饥始食,
having first meal after the sun's up high in the sky,
食竟饱还游。
wandering around after having the meal.
游罢睡一觉,
Taking a nap after wandering around,
觉来茶一瓯。
brewing pot of tea after taking a nap.

眼明见青山,
you see the green mountain if the eyes are clear,
耳醒闻碧流。
you hear the jade stream if the ears are awake,
脱袜闲濯足,
take off the socks, soaking feet lying idle,
解巾快搔头。
untie the kerchief, scratching head quickly and pleased.
