Zen Calligraphy, Meditation And Wisdom In Bold Semi-cursive Script, Original Contemporary Zen Art
This Zen calligraphy shows two characters , 定 慧, meditation and wisdom, Japanese jōe, Chinese dìnghuì, ting-hui.
The first character 定 is the Japanese and Chinese translation of the Sanskrit word samādhi (定 Japanese jō, Chinese dìng, ting). In English it is translated as meditation and concentration.
The second character 慧 means Prajna or wisdom, Japanese e, Chinese hui.
The chapter on Meditation and Wisdom from the Platform Sutra Of The Sixth Patriarch Hui-neng has inspired this bold Zen calligraphy.
The original 'Meditation and Wisdom' calligraphy is not framed, to use the Oriental technical term, it is not mounted yet. I don't know if you are familiar with rice paper, but when you brush on it, it absorbs the ink and it wrinkles. Therefore the artwork needs to be mounted, which means it is stretched and flattened to take the wrinkles away.
For more information about mounting this 'Meditation and Wisdom' calligraphy please visit my website, at https://www.theartofcalligraphy.com/zen-art, where I recommend you a mounter in California, US. Please be aware that I cannot take any responsibility for the mounting.
At my page https://www.theartofcalligraphy.com/meditation-wisdom-zen-calligraphy you can find more details about this calligraphy.
Original size of the Meditation and Wisdom calligraphy in cm: 138 x 35 x 0,2 cm.
The artwork will be shipped rolled in a tube.
