Discount Asian Art
This wushu wall scroll is discounted because it is slightly wavy (not a wrinkle, just not 100% flat as it hangs). Most would not see this as a flaw, but I'm too picky.

Daoist / Taoist Tenet

Wu Wei is a Daoist (Taoist) tenet, that speaks to the idea of letting nature take its course.

Some will say it's about knowing when to take action and when not to. In reality, it's more about not going against the flow. What is going to happen is controlled by the Dao (Tao), for which one who follows the Dao will not resist or struggle against.

There is a lot more to this concept, but chances are, if you are looking for this title, you already know the expanded concept.

Warning: Outside of Daoist context, this means idleness or inactivity (especially in Japanese where very few know this as a Daoist concept).

This scroll has an inscription that reads, 道常無爲而無不爲 and means “The Way is always 'without action' - Yet there is nothing it doesn't do.”
This is a bit confusing, but probably references the fact that the Dao (Way) does not require great action, but rather, we all follow a certain flow as the Dao guides us.
