SKU: P118

Chinese character for "Lenient" (Kuan) 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 Lenient (pinyin: Gun, Wades-Giles: Kuan) is characterized by tolerance and mercy. To be lenient is to forgive and to be charitable. A good piece of art to have on your desk or in a family room and perfect for anyone practicing moral teachings or zen meditation. 

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.
