Hearing the other party’s question, charlie smiled slightly, and said, “You should be Grandma’s son, right? My surname is wade, and my father and father are old acquaintances. Let me come and have a look at Grandma Jiang.” The
other party asked in surprise, “You Does the old man recognize me?”
charlie nodded slightly.
At this time, an old lady slowly walked out from under the cooking shed. She looked at charlie with some doubts, frowned and asked, “Young man, do you know my husband?”
charlie said, “You are Grandma Jiang, my father knows him .” Your husband.” The
old lady hesitated for a moment, and quickly said, “Come in, come in!”
Then she said to her son, “Yaoer, please come in and pour water for the guests.” The
middle-aged man hurried up He opened the door before, and said politely, “Please come in, both of you, and sit inside the room!”
charlie nodded, thanked him, and entered the yard with Isaac Cameron.
This small courtyard is not that big, only a few tens of square meters in size. There are three wooden houses and two thatched sheds, one on the left and one on the right. The stove, and the other is built against the wall, making a circle of cover, the area is not large, it looks like a toilet.
And the three wooden houses are directly opposite the gate, the main room in the middle is wide open, and there are two rooms on the left and right inside, and the doors of the rooms are covered with cloth curtains.
charlie and Isaac Cameron followed the middle-aged man into the main room. There was a long and slender altar table in the middle of the room against the wall. Definitely a very old object.
On the top of the altar, there are incense burners and a number of tablets, and the names of the people written on them are all surnamed Jiang.
And on the wall above the altar, there are three Chinese-style portraits hanging.
The portrait in the center is a middle-aged man wearing a blue gown. Although the man is skinny, he is in good spirits. He stands on a boulder on a mountain with his hands behind his back. His long beard and the hem of his clothes follow him. The wind is blowing, the old man looks up at the sky, his expression is full of pride and ambition;
on the left side of the portrait, a seven or eight-year-old child is sitting cross-legged at a stone table on the top of the mountain, reading a book; on the right side, is an old man Portrait of sitting upright.
charlie has been in contact with antiques, he can tell that these paintings are all ancient paintings, and they are quite old.
He couldn’t help sighing secretly in his heart, “Although I don’t know whether these three paintings are from the hands of famous ancient masters, but just looking at the exquisite craftsmanship and unique charm, it can be concluded that they are not ordinary products. If they are brought to the market, they will not be much more Said, at least hundreds of thousands of a pair, three paintings sold for one million, should be easy.”
“One million is not a small number for ordinary people, since the three paintings hanging in the old lady’s house are so valuable , why was her son tricked into going to Mexico on the pretext of being a sailor? Even the mother and son almost died in a foreign country…”
At this point, charlie had more questions in his heart.
However, he can also see from this that his guess yesterday was correct. Although the old lady is living in poverty now, her family has been passed down in order for more than a thousand years, and her family background is absolutely extraordinary!
At this moment, the middle-aged man looked at these two well-dressed young men, somewhat nervous and cramped. He pointed to the low wooden table and wooden stool in the middle of the main room, and said with some embarrassment, “Please sit down, please. I’m really sorry, the conditions at home are poor, I’ve wronged you two, I’ll go and pour water for you two.”
