Yang Xiong, a cultural celebrity in ancient China, is a well-known figure in the history of Chinese literature with abundant research on his literary achievements. However, little research has been done on the presentation of his name, former residence, and prose poems in Chinese calligraphy from an iconographic perspective. This paper intends to explore how “Yang Xiong,” “Yang Ziyun,” “Ziyun Pavilion in Xishu Prefecture,” and “Yang Xiong’s prose poems” are presented in the Chinese calligraphy, especially in calligraphies by Wang Xizhi, Su Dongpo, Huang Tingjian, Mi Fu, and other famous calligraphers in the previous dynasties. Research shows that Yang Xiong influenced not only Chinese literature but also Chinese calligraphy to a certain extent.
