五子登科 Wu Zi Deng Ke, is an idiom of blessing to wish great achievement for the off springs.

 There is a man named Dou Yu Jun, a scholar of the court in the 5 Dynasty period, he had 5 sons at late age.  All 5 sons had great academic achievements and came top in the official examination.

 Since the Siu dynasty 605 AD, China has developed a system in the selection of her officials basing on a literature examination, it is every parents’ wish for their son to do well in the exam.  For 5 sons to do came top on the list would be one’s widest dream and blessing.

Come to see the actual print and many others at the
