Skilful man shows off ‘Dragon-Phoenix calligraphy’ at a Chinese mall

A skilful man showed off "Dragon-Phoenix calligraphy" by drawing flowers and birds to form Chinese characters at a mall in eastern China.

The impressive video, shot in Huai’an City in Jiangsu Province on December 31, 2018, shows a man in his 50s named Chen using a piece of bark to draw pictures on a paper and forming them into Chinese characters.

Dragon-Phoenix calligraphy is also called as Flower-Bird calligraphy as the characters are mostly formed by flowers and birds' images.

It can date back to the earliest days of the Chinese writing system, reports said.
