This is a very unique form of calligraphy. It's a Chinese character that is made to look like an actual figure. In this case, a roaring tiger.

The large character is pronounced "hu" in Chinese. It's also the symbol for tiger in Japanese Kanji and old Korean Hanja. Though it might take a bit of imagination to actually "read" this tiger-shaped character.

These are some of the variations of how the tiger character has been written in the past 3000 years: 虎 虎 虎 虎
The last one is a curive style, and you may see the curly stroke in the body of the tiger that matches this one.

About the Artist...

This was painted by a very shy artist named Ye Ying-Xing from near Guilin, China. I asked if I could take his picture, but he politely refused with a gesture of modesty. He does not seek fame, and in another gesture of Chinese modesty, he insulted his own artwork, saying that it was not good enough to make such a fuss over.

I think the artwork is worthy, and offers a unique and different style that most people in the west have never seen before (it's even rare in China).
