                In the Southern and Northern Dynasties Period (nán běi cháo 南北朝,420-589AD), there was a painter called Zhang Sengyou (zhāng sēng yóu 張僧繇). Once he visited a temple and painted on the wall four dragons, but gave none of them eyes. The onlookers felt that this was odd, and asked why he had not painted the eyes. He answered, ‘Eyes are crucial for dragons. With the eyes painted on , the dragons would fly away.’ Nobody believed this, so Zhang Zengyou took up his brush and added eyes to two of the dragons. No sooner had he finished than the two dragons flew into the sky amid a thunderstorm. The two without eyes stayed painted on the wall. This idiom is used to describe how, when writing or speaking, one or two key sentences will enhance the contents.

                張僧繇(yóu ),梁武帝(蕭衍)時期的名畫家,擅寫真、頊道人物,亦善畫 龍 、鷹、花卉、山水等。擅作人物故事畫及宗教畫,時人稱為超越前人的畫家。梁武帝好佛,凡裝飾佛寺,多命他畫壁。所繪佛像,自成樣式,被稱為“張家樣”,為雕塑者所楷模。張僧繇他的畫活靈活現,畫的東西跟真的一模一樣。甚至有人說他畫的動物真的能活起來。有一次,他到一個地方去游覽,他興趣來了,就在金陵安樂寺廟的墻壁上面畫了四條龍,可是沒有畫眼睛。有人就問他:“你為什么不畫龍的眼睛呢?”。他回答說:“眼睛是龍的精髓,只要畫上眼睛,龍就會飛走的。”大家哈哈大笑起來,認為他是個瘋子。沒想到他提起畫筆,運足了氣力,剛給兩條龍點上眼睛,立刻烏云滾滾而來,突然電閃雷鳴,兩條蛟龍騰空而起,人們驚得目瞪口呆,全都傻了眼了。 于是后來“畫龍點睛”這個成語用來比喻講話或寫文章畫畫時,一兩句關鍵的話(畫)會使它們立刻生動起來。
