Chinese calligraphy: "Longevity" 壽, in cursive script style (grass-hand). Original work. Unframed. A life of longevity is wonderful, but a long, meaningful life is blissful. Without meaning, life is an empty journey filled with things that can not completely satisfy us. We will never be content and happy if we lead a meaningless life.
Black sumi ink on textured red color, golden dragon line background Chinese rice paper. 12" by 13". Signed with the seal of the artist: "the heart of the Buddha." The calligraphy itself is professionally double-mounted on another piece of thicker rice paper, so the surface is totally flattened. Ready to be put into a frame.
