As the art of writing Chinese characters (hàn zì 汉字), Chinese calligraphy, or shufa, is boasting as long a history as that of China itself. It is one of the highest forms of Chinese art, serving the purpose of conveying thoughts while also showcasing abstract beauty of lines. Calligraphy is one of the four basic skills and disciplines of the Chinese literati, together with painting (huà 画), stringed musical instruments (qín 琴) and board games (qí 棋). However, rhythm, lines, and structure are more perfectly embodied in calligraphy than in the other three skills.Calligraphy (shū fǎ 书法) has traditionally been regarded as China's highest form of visual art - to the point that a person's character was judged by the elegance of their handwriting!The basic tools of calligraphy - brush and ink - are also the tools of Chinese painting, with linework and tone the all-important components.
