Chinese Calligraphy is an art form passed on from generation to generation. Each character is a symbol made of many strokes. Certain stroke orders were recommended to ensure speed, accuracy, and legibility in composition.
A common scene in the parks of China is to see people practicing their calligraphy using water and an over-sized brush tracing symbols carved into the walkways.
