Martial Arts: Glass Block Paperweight
Lays flat for paperweight or stands vertical as desk ornament
Two layers of thick glass
Chinese calligraphy for "Martial Arts" (Wu) in a heavy glass paperweight.
This character appears in many martial arts schools in China and Japan, and describes any martial art discipline, with or without weapons. See our other calligraphy "Wu shu" which means "Martial Art Skill", commonly referred to as "kung fu" here in the west. Note: This is not the same "wu" as used for dance movements.
Inspirational Chinese calligraphy printed and sandwiched between two pieces of thick glass for an attractive desk ornament or paperweight. Lays flat or stands vertically. Double-sided calligraphy. Dimensions: 2.5” x 4” x 1” thick and weighs 13.5 ounces.
Construction note: Thick glass has a natural greenish tint on the edges as seen in the photos. The block has a thin 2-mm space between the sections where the double-sided calligraphy is inserted. The edges are beveled to prevent cuts when handling.
