In my message to the visitors at the calligraphy exhibition held in Poland in November 2017 which I was really fortunate to be allowed to participate in, I briefly mentioned “power of words” that is extremely intriguing to me.
Songs of Japanese bush warblers seem to stand out among other birds these days. Here is another copying practice of my teacher’s work which I am sure expresses his mischievous side very well. This is a phonetic equivalence of a Japanese word for this bird. And I remember he loved this kind of game very much. We Japanese have a traditional belief in the spiritual power of words and here, it seemed he believed in that of each character and chose letters of positive, bright, auspicious attribute.
