Glory of Chinese Calligraphy

Price: $ 49.95
Calligraphy is written art. Each dot and stroke can be made, through the rich flexibility of the writing brush, to yield a host of variations in degree of squareness, roundedness, lightness, heaviness, thickness or thinness. When these dots and strokes are combined into individual characters, the characters into columns and the columns into a complete piece of calligraphy, they form a complex and abstract visual image. A good calligraphic work is like a living, breathing body, it has blood, flesh, muscle, bone and spirit.
