For thousands of years of Chinese tradition, the many forms and styles of ink and brush strokes have symbolised different things. This calendar uses this variety to depict the four seasons. Based on the idea that it accompanies users as they flip through the pages of each month, it demonstrates how ink painting is changing and evolving. In this way, it describes the characteristics of the four seasons – spring for example is symbolised as the season of reincarnation. At the same time, the calendar raises awareness of the cultural uniqueness of Chinese ink.
