Calligraphy is one of China’s unique traditional arts. Chinese characters (Hanzi) were the creation of the working class. It started with drawings to record events. After several thousand years of development, it had evolved into its contemporary form of characters. With the invention of “maobi” (Chinese Calligraphy brush pen) as the writing implement or tool by their ancestors, it had led to the formation of calligraphy.
