Chinese calligraphy: "Hope", in semi-cursive script style. Original work. Unframed.
Black sumi ink on textured red color, golden background Chinese rice paper. 8" by 9.5". Signed with the seals of the artist. The calligraphy itself is professionally double-mounted on another piece of thicker acid-free cotton paper, so the surface is totally flattened. Ready to be put into a frame.
