Chinese Calligraphy Wall Scrolls and Artwork
"Chinese calligraphy shows an incontestable esthetic quality.
For this reason, the Chinese -- the intellectuals in particular -- decorate their studies with one or two calligraphies excuted on a silk scroll to imbue their houses with a refined and distiniguised atmosphere.
They also follow the custom of putting up the two panels of their entry doors, or on either side of them, two parallel sentences written on two long pieces of paper.
These two phrases often express a wish for a good year, delare an aspiration of the master of the house, or simply show his desire to add a note of distinction to his house."-- Shi Bo, Between Heaven and Earth, A History of Chinese Writing

"Finally it should be made clear that in the Chinese sense of the word, writing is not equivalent to calligraphy, and knowing how to write is by no means all that is needed to be a calligrapher.
Just like traditional Chinese painting, Chinese-calligraphy is known throughout the entire world as a full-fledged art of its own, with an incontestable esthetic quality.
For centuries, many Chinese have devoted their entire lives to mastering this difficult discipline. Their works, which are very much sought after, are found in the world's museums alongside those of the greatest painters and sculptors." -- Shi Bo, Between Heaven and Earth, A History of Chinese Writing
