Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Virtue
Chinese character for "Virtue" (De) 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 Virtue (pinyin: Dé, Wades-Giles: Te), can also be translated as Morality, Ethics, Moral Power, Upright, etc. The ideogram implies that humans must comply with the laws of God to be virtuous. The concept is a bit like "karma", but virtue has immediate payback where karma is delayed.
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.
