Calligraphy partⅡ;

(posted; Japanese culture page)

Among the many calligraphy work from the exhibition I introduced in  the previous post, this work caught my attention and wished to show you separately. 
The title on the board said "Enjoyable pictograph (ancient script)" and shows how these four Chinese Characters were formed. You can see the process with the pictures in each work.

*I'll explain each one from left to right*
立.stand; This character is made from the image of a person standing with two legs on the gound. 
門.gate; Imaged from the gate with Two Doors (right and left) where people can go in and out.
果.nut;  Imaged the nuts on the tree. This characther has the meaning of 'accomplish'.
龍.dragon;  For this character, explained only meaning of the word  (hugeness. blessing. tendresse) and dragon brings clouds and rain.


Thank you very much for stopping by; trying to catching up, friends♪

What a clever way to explain what these symbols mean. And they make so much sense when it has been explained!

when i took japanese learning kanji was so so hard! but i did love learning how the strokes formed some sort of visual relation to the meaning of the word.
