"Sky" Japanese calligraphy



 "空"(sora, or kū) It is most often translated as "Void", but also meaning "sky" or "Heaven".

 It is one of the five elements.
 This character is written by Kanzi, Regular script.

 Etymology : Phono-semantic compound
 semantic 
(holl)  + phonetic  (labour, work)

 The ancient people may have imagined that it was opened a hole in the sky.
 They would have a really magnificent design.


 一切は「無」, 一切は「空」。
 All is "Nothing", all is "Void".

 The thing which I watch may be created by my heart...
