In the face of disaster, why are Chinese people always united? Let's start to understand with painting and calligraphy.
There is a report that Mr. Su Wanshun, a famous calligrapher in China, supported the fight against the new coronavirus and the epidemic with calligraphy.
There is a reason for Mr. Su Wanshun's "one word is worth a thousand gold". Jin Wen was written in Chinese two thousand years ago. During the anti epidemic period, Mr. Su Wanshun created many works with the ancient style and inspirational language, inspiring volunteers, medical staff, youngers, soldiers, public servants and so on.
Here is a brief introduction to Jinwen:
Jinwen is a title of ancient Chinese calligraphy, which refers to the inscription cast on the bronze ware of yin and Zhou dynasties, also known as Zhongdingwen. The Shang and Zhou dynasties are the era of bronze ware. The ritual vessels of bronze ware are represented by Ding, musical instruments are represented by bell, "Zhong Ding" is the synonym of bronze ware.
China has entered the Bronze Age since the Xia Dynasty. The smelting and manufacturing technology of copper are very developed. Because the Zhou Dynasty also called copper gold, the inscriptions on the bronze ware were called "Jinwen" or "jijinwen"; and because this kind of bronze ware had the most words on the bell tripod, it was also called "zhongdingwen" in the past.
Jin Wen was used a thousand years ago, from the end of Shang Dynasty to the end of Qin Dynasty, about 800 years ago. According to Rong Geng's Jin Wen Bian, there are 3722 characters in Jin Wen, of which 2420 can be recognized.
Mr. Su Wanshun learned from all people's strengths and read a lot of books. He deeply studied the calligraphers and painters' writing habits of Jin Wen in all dynasties and carried on Inheritance and development. His every stroke contains history, precipitation, details, self-confidence, strength and culture.
Why can China defeat the epidemic? Why can we overcome all difficulties? In the face of disaster, why are Chinese people always united?
Of course, this is closely related to the superb medical skills and day and night guarding of medical staff and many compatriots fighting in the front line. At the same time, it should be emphasized that behind these front-line soldiers there is a strong five thousand year cultural heritage support, a kind of belief, a kind of dependence and a kind of strength. This is not available in many countries.
Calligraphy and painting culture is one of the elements of Chinese culture. Mr. Su Wanshun, through the excavation of Chinese culture, shows it in the form of calligraphy, giving more strength and support to the first-line anti epidemic comrades.
