The Japanese brush painting of the kanji design for the word "Soul" consists of twelve strokes that produce six elements; the first element is the ghost or devil, the second is for a rice field or paddy, the third is for the number two, the fourth represents the legs, the fifth is for spoon and the last element of the kanji represents privacy.
Many believe that upon death, the soul leaves the body and continues to exists elsewhere. Buddhism teaches that all living creatures are sentient and deserving of mercy. Much like the elements of the kanji for "Soul," these beliefs combine the corporeal (death or living creatures and rice field/two/legs/spoon) and the metaphysical (soul or mercy and ghost/privacy).
We recommend that you choose a natural wood frame for the hand-crafted Japanese calligraphy of the "Soul" kanji. The soul of the wood is apparent in the visible grain and amplifies the "Soul" character through its color, texture and grain pattern.
Use the beauty of these Shodo art pieces to seize the spiritual power of Zen Buddhism and turn your home or office into a calm and soothing oasis.
