The hilltop kissing the setting-sun,
The Yellow River flows to the ocean.
Stepping up a still higher building,
You may enjoy the far sightseeing.


About Talented Disabled Artist Shouxing Wang

Shouxing Wang is from a village in Shandong China and actively lives with paralysis from waist down for nearly thirty years. To fight fate, he developed an interest in Chinese calligraphy art, which is believed to have a very similar effect to Chinese Taichi, cultivating the mind and morality. Now after nearly thirty years of practice, Mr. Wang has won various art competitions and can skillfully master all scripts of Chinese character calligraphy, namely, zhuanshu(seal script), lishu(clerical script), kaishu(regular script), xingshu(running script/semi cursive script) and caoshu(cursive script/grass script).


In addition to Chinese calligraphy art, Master. Wang is also a big fan of various kinds of musical instrument, such as erhu and flute. Master. Wang said, “Life is not fair but you make it fair with your effort and attitude.”


"Initially, practicing calligraphy lifted me out of the pain of losing legs, brought me consolation and gave me courage to face various difficulties in life, and I found new hopes. Now I believe in my future and I shall work harder and promote the calligraphy art form." he said. When he was interviewed by journalists with famous media and asked what it was like to practice calligraphy these years. View More Story

Very nicely done! The scroll was everything I expected it to be. However, the shipping and handling caused some creases. I suggest that the rectangular box which holds the scroll be put in another sturdier box (vis-a-vis a box within a box)to avoid damage. Aside from this, it suits as a perfect backdrop to my Tang horse display!!
