Ancient Chinese Art as in calligraphy, paintings.

I would guess because it came from that area, and the style of art is distinct among others.


What is this chinese store name in english?

On August 25, 2011, in Jade Store, by admin

It’s not good luck jade either. that’s a vendor :/

The vertical sign (red word with white background) at the bottom said:
– An An’s Jade, Crystal and Jewelry store.

The horizontal sign (white word with red background) at the top said:
– Beauty Capital boutique and stationery Center

"An An" and "Beauty Capital" are the Chinese name of those 2 stores. Likely, there are 2 owners sharing the store selling 2 different type of things. In most case, their Chinese name are not their name registered for bussiness.

Missed my lecture for school and I am in a bind here. If anyone is willing to answer this question, that’d be great.

Times – Ancient China to 500 B.C.E.

I haven’t had much luck finding an answer. My textbook is lame, internet is even worse. Only things I can find are about Confucianism and Daoism, but no clear answer.

Well…. I don’t know much about Chinese Art.

However, the two ideologies you mentioned had a great deal of influence upon the Chinese culture. For example, Taoism (Daoism) is the focus of the ultimate nature of the universe and on the interplay of the two basic dynamic elements of Yin and Yang that are at work in all aspects of life.

My understanding is that there is many different disciples (martial arts, medicine, calligraphy, gardening, and I’m sure art) have devoted themselves to the exploration of these elements in their unique mediums. Art would seem most influenced by the Yin/Yang aspects of empty space and elements that fill that space.

Try doing some research with that as a basis for your search.


any help? plz
ive tried EB and Game stop, they might have it now but was wondering if ne 1 has seen them elsewhere or in those 2 stores
