Shodo ~ Calligraphy

What is Shodo you ask?
Sho = writing
Do = a path of life
Shodo (pronounced sho-doe) is one of the traditional Japanese "Do" forms, such as Chado (tea ceremony), Kado (flower arrangement), Budo (martial ways), etc. Shodo is the specialized art of artistically writing kanji (Japanese and Chinese characters). It originated in China more than 3000 years ago.
