Xue Wu Zhi Jing
This calligraphy scroll tells of how we continue to learn throughout our lives. It can be translated in a few ways such as, "Study Has No End", or "Knowledge is Infinite"
The deeper meaning: Even when we finish school we are still students of the world gaining more knowledge from our surroundings with each passing day.
All of our Chinese calligraphy scrolls are hand painted with special Chinese ink on rice paper and then the wall scroll is built by hand using rice paper, silk, wood etc.
Chinese calligraphy is only practiced by those with a keen and agile hand. It is an art that dates back thousands of years, and great artists, writers, and poets are often admired for their calligraphy ability and style.
This hanging scroll is really nice since it doesn't require framing. Just hang it on your wall as Chinese people have done for centuries.

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.
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".
