The Year of the Tiger in Calligraphy

Posted in Places, Shops, Uncategorized by tokyobling on December 27, 2009

“Contemporary Calligraphy for the New Year – Inspirations with brush & ink”. Are you a fan of calligraphy and Japanese brush art? Are you into modern design and art? Hurry up and don’t miss the calligraphy exhibition at the Wako department store in Ginza. A number of famous calligraphers have been invited to interpret the coming year – the year of the tiger. In their show window you can see bottles displayed, all decorated with the Japanese word for tiger – tora or 虎, とら, トラ, 寅, depending on what characters you want to write it in. Simplicity and grace when at it’s best.
