Balance (Peace)

Chinese / Japanese Calligraphy Scroll

Balance / Peace Chinese and Japanese Kanji Calligraphy Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the calligraphy artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This character means balance. Sometimes the thought of being in balance, also takes on the meaning of being at peace. Therefore, this character really has too meanings.

Mandarin: píng
Japanese: hira
Korean: 평 (pyeong)

If you want to remember to keep your life, family, friends, and/or job in balance (so that you can find peace), this is a great wall scroll to hang in your home or office.

A professional Chinese Calligrapher

Professional calligraphers are getting to be hard to find these days.
Instead of drawing characters by hand, the new generation in China merely type roman letters into their computer keyboards and pick the character that they want from a list that pops up.

There is some fear that true Chinese calligraphy may become a lost art in the coming years. Many art institutes in China are now promoting calligraphy programs in hopes of keeping this unique form of art alive.

Trying to learn Chinese calligrapher - a futile effort

Even with the teachings of a top-ranked calligrapher in China, my calligraphy will never be good enough to sell. I will leave that to the experts.

A high-ranked Chinese master calligrapher that I met in Zhongwei

The same calligrapher who gave me those lessons also attracted a crowd of thousands and a TV crew as he created characters over 6-feet high. He happens to be ranked as one of the top 100 calligraphers in all of China. He is also one of very few that would actually attempt such a feat.
