Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Buddha

Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Buddha

SKU: P120

Chinese character for "Buddha" (Fó) displayed in a curved glass frame, with optional acrylic stand included. Glass frame size: 6" x 7.25" with 4" x 6" character insert.

The character for Buddha (pinyin: Fo) is a term phonetically translated from Sanskrit, an ancient Indian language. Buddha means "an enlightened being", one who has become enlightened through cultivating one's character and is able to distinguish righteous from evil. 

The character is painted in running script style, then printed on acid-free 100% cotton archival paper. A unique curved glass frame focuses attention on the character and makes a simple, yet beautiful way of displaying the character on a desk, shelf, or table.

Chinese calligraphy is considered the quintessence of Chinese culture and art. The black and white strokes are an expression of the spirit and images of nature and reflect the calligraphers feelings... a balance between the form and the ideological content expressed in a character.
