Master Calligraphy Series

Dao (Pinyin: Dao; Wades Giles: Tao) is a Chinese concept signifying 'way', 'path', 'route', or sometimes more loosely, 'doctrine' or 'principle'. Within the context of traditional Chinese philosophy and religion, The Dao is the intuitive knowing of "life" that of which cannot be grasped full-heartedly as just a concept but known nonetheless through actual living experience of one's everyday being.
The character is painted in running script style, then printed on acid-free 100% cotton archival paper. The uniquely matted frame focuses attention on the character and makes a simple, yet beautiful display on a desk, shelf, or table.
