Description Chinesecalligraphy, lucky roll with the wisdom of a long life.
Chinese calligraphy (Chinese 中國書法 / 中国书法, pinyin zhōngguó shūfǎ) is an art form closely related to Chinese painting. The same tools, the Four Treasures of the Scholar's Room, are used in both arts: Writing brush, rod ink, rubbing stone and paper. Therefore, it is not surprising that famous Chinese calligraphers were often also important painters. Chinese calligraphy has a history of over five thousand years. Through oral transmission of wisdom from the Yi Jing, also known as the Book of Changes, developed with a fixed sign system of special elements - the hexagrams - a philosophical language from which later developed the Chinese picture writing and forms of writing in China, which now exist for over 3,000 years. In the 3rd millennium B.C. one used in China this dualism language, the calligraphy originates from this special writing. Chinese calligraphy is a particular art of writing in China and Asia. One learns each stroke by heart through practice and thus builds up the script in harmonized perfection. As in Chinese ink painting, one reaches perfection in writing through hand movement. Thus, the practitioner comes through effort and endeavor to the serenity of thought on the path of relaxation of the whole - physically and mentally. One of the most famous Chinese calligraphers was Wang Xizhi, whose style, after more than a millennium, is still the basis of calligraphy instruction today. Calligraphy was considered an important part of education and should also allow conclusions about personality.
