Zen: Glass Calligraphy Keychain
Chinese calligraphy for "Zen (Chan)" pendant on a keychain.
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.
Approximately .75 x 1.25" rectangular metal bezel with thick glass front. The glass magnifies the calligraphy image slightly and the bezel's finish and thick casting gives it a vintage look. Keychain has lobster clasp, swivel, and key ring. Silk jewelry gift pouch included (random colors).
Choice of 3 metal finishes: Polished Silver, Vintage Copper, or Gunmetal Silver.
