Chinese Calligraphy (Calligraphy in Chinese)

Chinese Calligraphy is a traditional art form practiced for many centuries. The art is highly revered in both Eastern and Western cultures.  When Chinese calligraphy originated is subject to much scholarly debate, but legend points to the invention of Chinese letters during the reign of the Yellow Emperor, Tsung Jie, 4,600 years ago. Chinese calligraphy was originally a beautiful way for Chinese people to write. As time went on, people began to appreciate the beauty of calligraphy. From this appreciation was born the art of Calligraphy in Chinese.

In modern times, Chinese Calligraphy is both an art form and a mediation style. The tranquil flows of the pen stroke produce both a stunning visual art, and a beautiful meditative dance.
