Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Joy
Chinese character for "Joy" (Xi) 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 Chinese (and Japanese Kanji) character for Joy is most often seen in duplicate, as in the "double happiness" or "double joy" symbol used in Chinese holidays or weddings. It can also be translated as happiness, enjoyment, delight, "to rejoice", or "to take pleasure in." It is considered an auspicious character and is popular in calligraphy and signage.
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.
