    Qian Shaowu, a noted calligrapher from Wuxi, Jiangsu, is unusual in that he is also a renowned sculptor. The artist's tenure as department head for sculpture at the extremely prestigious Chinese Central Academy of Fine Arts is indicative of his prominence. His sculptural work is often massive in scale, and that dramatic spirit can be seen in the large and confident strokes of his calligraphy, especially evident in this particular example.
