Asteroid 110289, Dufu, was discovered on September 23, 2001 Sept. 23 by William Kwong Yu (Bill) Yeung at the Desert Eagle Observatory near Benson, Arizona. It has a period of 5 years, 261 days.

It was named for medieval Chinese poet Du Fu (712-c. 770), who is called one of the greatest Chinese poets, along with Li Bai (Li Po).

Du Fu

Astrologically, asteroid Dufu seems to have to do with an environment or culture of oppression or one that is burdensome, or dealing with such an environment.

The glyph for Dufu is mine and consists of the Chinese characters of his name.
