Chinese calligraphy serves the purpose of conveying thought and also shows the 'abstract' beauty of the line. rhythm, line, and structure are more perfectly embodied in calligraphy than in painting or sculpture.Chinese calligraphy just like Chinese painting is divided into two major categories: Free Hand Brushwork (Xieyi) and Detailed Brushwork (Gongbi) . The former is characterized by simple and bold strokes intended to represent the exaggerated likenesses of the objects, while the latter by fine brushwork and close attention to detail. Employing different techniques , the two schools try to achieve the same end, the creation of beauty.æ”€ç™» (Pan Deng) - ClimbingNote: This is a hand writing and may vary from the picture shown.
