Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Shifu
Chinese characters for "Shifu" displayed in a curved glass frame, with optional acrylic stand included. Glass frame size: 6" x 7.25" with 4" x 6" character insert.
Shifu is pinyin for the Mandarin pronunciation and Sifu for the Cantonese pronunciation of the same written characters. It is a title used for a skillful person or master. Some confusion in English exists because there is another title for one who is skilled that sounds identical but is written differently and refers to a skill obtained in a working-class profession such as cooking or taxi driving.
The character is written 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.
