TTable Runner - Traditional Chinese Calligraphy Pattern - Excerpt of "Lan Ting Xu 兰亭序" by Wang, Xi-Zhi (the famed Chinese calligrapher in 4th Century AD)
The traditional Chinese calligraphy pattern is an excerpt of one of the most well-known traditional Chinese calligraphy scripts of all times, written and calligraphed by Wang Xi-Zhi in 353 AD. The text of the script describes the natural scenery of the mountains and streams surrounding Lan Ting. The author reflected his life by contrasting the beautiful and ever-changing nature and the vastness of the universe with the tediousness and shortness of one’s life and his surroundings. The calligraphy script is printed on linen, an artistic attempt in imitating the imperfectness and roughness of one’s life experience in the olden days contrasting the elegance of the author’s freely expressive calligraphy strokes.
