The Japanese Zen Circle
Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll
This is Enso, which is really NOT a regular Japanese Kanji character. It falls more into the category of a symbol. In this case, it can be considered a religious symbol, as it is strongly associated with Japanese Zen Buddhism.
Some call this "The Circle of Enlightenment". Others call it the "Infinity Circle". If you actually took the meanings of the two Kanji that make up the word "Enso", you could read it as "Mutual Circle" or "Circle of Togetherness". I think the Enso symbol can simply mean different things to different people. Therefore, you should let it have the meaning that you perceive.
See our Enso Symbol Custom Japanese Wall Scrolls page for more custom options.
The materials used include special calligraphy paper and ink. The artwork was sent to our workshop in Beijing where we created a hand-built silk brocade wall scroll. By building the wall scroll at our own workshop, we save you a lot of money.
This is economy Japanese calligraphy by Japanese calligrapher whose pen name is Kougetsu. Kougetsu is a high-quality calligrapher from Japan, offering her work at a bargain price. You would easily pay $230 or more for the same quality of Japanese calligraphy and wall scroll mounting if purchased in Japan. Famous calligrapher's often demand $2500 or more, without a perceived increase in quality.
Therefore, this very nice, authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scroll is a true bargain, and allows you to get "Japanese quality" at a very discounted price.
