Calligraphy Art II

Calligraphy is practically as old as the beginning of the written word and 'written' includes stone carvings.

Even though nowadays most of the calligraphy is mainly, but not exclusively, used for invitations, there are many old books and documents around in which you can still find this swirly, curly and unique craft.

There are several types of calligraphy: Western, Eastern Asian, South Asian, Islamic and other stand alone calligraphy like Mayan Glyphs. I suspect if you master one, it will be a piece of cake learning the others.

Art doesn't always have to be very elaborate; a few verses or expressions artfully written down and framed can result in some wonderful wall art.

It is truly beautiful and I rather see this kind of writing on the wall then any other!
