wooden dummy carving

Post by sunmtn » Feb 15, 2012 9:58 pm

Gary,
In the photo I have attached, the words Wing Tsun are carved into the top part-front along with a carving of a fist over it. Is this calligraphy anything unique or is it standard ancient seal script?

Thanks,

Ancient seal script is sometimes hard to talk about in terms of "standard". At about 221 B.C. when seal script was at its peak, there were lots of variant character forms.

Refer back to this post, and you'll see the versions in your carving are represented:

Gary,
Thank you! The display of so many seal script styles (that you sent last time as well) that say "Wing Tsun" (wing chun) is fantastic and helpful!
