Origins of Chinese Culture BHT067


Let this book guide you through the perplexing maze of all things Chinese. Pick up interesting facts about the "Four Treasures of Study" - brush, ink, paper and ink stone - which form the cornerstone of Chinese culture. Study in great detail the origin of Chinese characters and customs through the reading of fascinating stories which can be enjoyed by children and adults alike, and be enthralled by charming stories of Chinese icons such as Cao Cao, who hinted that he wants a door widened just by writing a character on the door, Shi Kuang, whose music was said to resurrect the dead and Wu Daozi, who never completed his paintings for fear that they would come alive. Very interesting reading indeed!
