The beauty of Japanese calligraphy

When I went to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art two years ago, I completely missed its perhaps most beautiful part: the pavilion for Japanese art. But this year, as it appears, is good for calligraphy. After seeing the seemingly unrivaled works of Arabic calligraphers in Kuala Lumpur, I bated my breath again, this time for the masters from Japanese islands…

Tender curves of a female calligrapher are quite distinguishable from the works of men.

This one means “A silence like a clap of thunder”. The ink explosion is both the “a” and a visual metaphor for the phrase itself.

Poem on the bottom of a square dinner plate. I want this!
