Enso

The Japanese Zen Circle

Large Enso Japanese Symbol - Large Wall Scroll close up view

Close up view of the artwork mounted to this silk brocade wall scroll

This is Enso, which is really NOT a regular Japanese Kanji character. It falls more into the category of a symbol. In this case, it can be considered a religious symbol, as it is strongly-associated with Japanese Zen Buddhism.

Some call this "The Circle of Enlightenment". Others call it the "Infinity Circle". If you actually took the meanings of the two Kanji that make up the word "Enso", you could read it as "Mutual Circle" or "Circle of Togetherness". I think the Enso symbol can simply mean different things to different people. Therefore, you should let it have the meaning that you perceive.

About this artwork...

This was created by Japanese master calligrapher Bishou Imai of Nara, Japan. The materials used include special calligraphy paper and ink. The artwork was sent to our workshop in Beijing where we created a hand-built silk brocade wall scroll. By building the wall scroll at our own workshop, we save you a lot of money - most authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scrolls cost over $200!

About the artist...

This is economy Japanese calligraphy by Japanese calligrapher whose pen name is Kougetsu. Kougetsu is a high-quality calligrapher from Japan, offering her work at a bargain price. You would easily pay $230 or more for the same quality of Japanese calligraphy and wall scroll mounting if purchased in Japan. Famous calligrapher's often demand $2500 or more, without a perceived increase in quality.

Therefore, this very nice, authentic Japanese calligraphy wall scroll is a true bargain, and allows you to get "Japanese quality" at a very discounted price.

Gary's random little things about China:

I pee freely:

If you come to China, save your small change...
In Beijing, the government recently passed a law against charging money for using a public toilet.
However, in other cities and towns around China, expect to pay between 2-5 mao (about 3-5 cents) for the use.
Bring your own toilet paper, or expect to pay 5 mao for a small pack of tissue as you enter.

In my opinion, the best public toilet in all of China is at Tian'anmen Square.
This public restroom is not only clean, but also features its own gift shop.
