Calligraphy Exhibition and Birds;

(posted; Japanese culture page)

*Calligraphy Exhibition*
On 6th, my retired husband's ex-lady colleagues demonstrated writing larger paper, rather than 25cm×35cm 半紙 (hanshi). This time I found attractive way of exhibiting and works on corrugated cardboards or round shaped plastic balls with seasonal items in them.  Lovely to find the names of the season written both English and Japanese.

This work was done by engraving Polystyrene foam;

*Demonstration of the big works*

*Finished Works and the calligraphers*

I found these pigeons beside the parking lot in front of the 'Cultural Hall';

Cold Looking Ducks I found in the river way home from shopping;
