Calligraphy Cross Stitch Book
brush calligraphy is an ancient art comparable to a painting in
its ability to evoke emotion through a variety of forms and designs.
Chinese calligraphy is not only a practical tool of everyday living;
it also comprises, along with traditional Chinese painting, the
mainstream of China's art history. All kinds of people, from emperors
to peasants, have avidly collected works of fine calligraphy.
Calligraphic works are not just for making into scrolls or framing
and hanging in a room; they are also to be found everywhere: in
shops, on government office building signs, monuments, and stone
as the most abstract and sublime form of art in Chinese culture,
calligraphy is often thought to be most revealing of one's personality.
During the imperial era, calligraphy was used as an important
criterion for selection of executives to the Imperial court. Unlike
other visual art techniques, all calligraphy strokes are permanent
and incorrigible, demanding careful planning and confident execution.
Such are the skills required for an administrator / executive.
While one has to conform to the defined structure of words, the
expression can be extremely creative. To exercise humanistic imagination
and touch under the faceless laws and regulations is also a virtue
well appreciated. To the artist, calligraphy is a mental exercise
that coordinates the mind and the body to choose the best styling
in expressing the content of the passage. It is a most relaxing
yet highly disciplined exercise indeed for one's physical and
spiritual well-being. Historically, many calligraphy artists were
well-known for their longevity.
