-中国书法(Chinese Calligraphy):

书法是中国艺术的重要组成部份。其表现形式是依附於汉字的艺术,而汉字属於表意文字,笔划的组合变化多端,与其他民族的拼音文字相比较,汉字更富於造形性。加上汉字书法不仅有一套完整的笔法(点、横、撇、竖、钩等),更加有一套成熟的审美体系。依循汉字的结体规律,变化组合,就可以表现出千姿百态的书法艺术,创造出不同面貌和情趣的美感。

According to Stanley-Baker, "Calligraphy is sheer life experienced through energy in motion that is registered as traces on silk or paper, with time and rhythm in shifting space its main ingredients." Calligraphy has also led to the development of many forms of art in China, including seal carving, ornate paperweights, and inkstones.
