Chinese Calligraphy Art in Curved Glass: Zen
Chinese characters for "Zen" (pinyin: Chán) displayed in a curved glass frame, with optional acrylic stand included. Glass frame size: 6" x 7.25" with 4" x 6" character insert.
Zen simply means Meditation, but it has become associated with Mahayana Buddhism which emphasizes sitting meditation in its practice. Originating in India and spreading through China as Chan Buddhism (the Chan character in Japanese is pronounced "Zen"), Zen is popular through the world.
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.
