Calligraphy is a form of artistic expression with profound influence on traditional Chinese culture. It has a long history from ancient times to today. It is an artistic display of the content and pattern lines of Chinese characters.
Calligraphy refers to writing with writing tools "pen, ink, paper, and ink stone". The characteristics and meanings of characters as well as the structure and rules of the brushwork have made it a work of art and aesthetic.
