Balance (Peace)

Chinese / Japanese Calligraphy Painting

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.

About the materials and construction of this painting:

The calligraphy was done using black Chinese ink on xuan paper (known incorrectly in the west as "rice paper"). The raw artwork was then taken to our Wall Scroll Workshop where it was laminated to more sheets of xuan paper, and built into a beautiful portrait with silk brocade border.

About the artist:

This calligraphy was created by Li Dan-Qing of Beijing. He's an older gentleman who has been involved with the art community of China, all of his life. Now in retirement, he creates calligraphy for us for sort of "hobby income".
