Master Calligraphy Series

The character for Love (pinyin: ài), can also be translated as affection, to cherish, to deeply love, to treasure, etc. Unlike Western culture, it is not expressed often and is reserved for special occasions or spiritual connections rather than passion. When spoken in public, it is often used in the context of loving something rather than someone, or as an auxiliary verb. This character for love, comes from deep in the hearttrue love.
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.
